Defined by Glory

I ask—ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength! Eph 1:17-19

If you want to get in the glory, then define yourself by the glory. Camp out in some of the great glory chapters in the Bible. Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Revelation are filled with first hand accounts of the magnificence and authority of heaven. The psalmists take us from the depths for the valley to the heights of the heaven, revealing our Shepherd who cares for us, our God who vindicates us, our King who delivers us. Jesus’ words in red come directly from the throne, revealing the Father to you. Meditate on them, and you will come more and more into congruency with His presence. You will learn His ways, gain His wisdom, come away with understanding, and encounter His endless energy and boundless strength and be changed. It will create supernatural metamorphosis in you down to the cellular level.

You can start right now, right here with Jesus, the King of glory. He defines who you are and what you are called to do:

All this energy issues from Christ: God raised him from death and set him on a throne in deep heaven, in charge of running the universe, everything from galaxies to governments, no name and no power exempt from his rule. And not just for the time being, but forever. He is in charge of it all, has the final word on everything. At the center of all this, Christ rules the church. The church, you see, is not peripheral to the world; the world is peripheral to the church. The church is Christ’s body, in which he speaks and acts, by which he fills everything with his presence. Eph 1:20-23
