Every son of God has inherited the glory of the heavenly Father and is a partaker of Christ’s glory. Our opening scripture says that we have been called to glory. As partakers of the glory of the kingdom, we have access to great promises and privileges.
We must learn to abide in His glory and express it outwardly. Our lives must be so fruitful to the extent that others will give glory to God because of what they see in us. Therefore, let His glory be seen in your life always so that others will see and desire to also enter the kingdom of God.
Here are three ways to abide in the glory:
Fellowship Every Day with the Holy Spirit.
” …that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” – Romans 6:4
Apostle Paul teaches that Jesus was raised from the dead by the Holy Spirit, and in this scripture, Paul refers to Him as the glory of the Father. As we keep fellowshipping with the glory of the Father—that is the Holy Spirit—we abide and increase in the glory.
2. As you pray allow God to guide you into His glory.
“You will keep on guiding me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.” – Psalms 73:24 (NLT)
The counsels of the Spirit of God guide us into the glorious destinies which the Lord has prepared for us. As we continue to acknowledge Him in all our ways, the Bible says that He will direct our paths.
3. Endure tribulations.
“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory” – 2 Corinthians 4:17
Don’t lose heart when you go through afflictions; as you endure and overcome them, they work out a far greater glory in your life. The greater the victory, the greater the glory. Keep your faith in God alive for His glory to be made manifest in you.
Son of God, remember that Christ in you, the hope of glory; therefore, abide in the glory as you continue to fellowship with the Holy Spirit, allowing Him to guide you, and be strong in His power to endure tribulations.
Heavenly Father, I ask You to guide me by Your counsel so that Your glory may be fully manifested in my life, in the name of Jesus.
1 Corinthians 2:7-9
