For God’s Glory to be Revealed in the Church…

For God’s glory to be revealed in the church, as Paul prayed, we must be satisfied in him individually and collectively, though we also along for the day we see Jesus face to face (Exodus 33:18; I Corinthians 13:2).  This means enjoying him as our greatest treasure, knowing beyond knowing that he loves us, being captivated by and grasping his love, living in a maturing relationship with him, repenting as a person, growing to glorify him more and more by grace with joy, sharing his fame with others, humbly serving those in need as he has served us, singing of his love, and praying for his church. The life lived to reveal the glory of our Father God results in our joy and other’s good as we become more like Jesus by the Spirit’s power.
