For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6 NKJV
(Jesus Christ) being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person. Hebrews 1:3 NKJV
What is glory? In Hebrew it means splendor, honor, beauty, majesty, grandeur, or excellence. In Greek it means dignity, honor, praise, or esteem. No amount of words, however descriptive they may be, can help us fully grasp what glory truly is. The reason is because glory is not so much about what we describe, as it is about what we behold.
In John 1:14 we read, “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John wasn’t given a divine description of Jesus Christ, he was given a personal revelation of Him. John’s eyes looked upon the fullness of God’s glory— grace and truth in the face of Jesus Christ.
What is the glory of God? Jesus Christ!
Who is the glory of God? Jesus Christ!
Where is the glory of God? Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the center point, the starting point, and the ending point of the glory of God. We behold the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ, not somewhere else or through something else.
His glory is so great, so vast, and so magnificent that it will take you an eternity to behold it. His glory will keep on delighting you. His glory will mean one continuous “Wow, Jesus, Wow!” forever, and ever, and ever. Hallelujah!
