Heart to Heart: Becoming Like Christ, the King of Glory



As we walk with the Lord and incline our hearts to do His will, we become more like Christ. We have no power of our own to attain to such a high calling. When the King of Glory comes in, our vessels are filled with His glorious light, so that we can grow in grace, and the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and be transformed into His image. In His light, we see light. To Him be glory forever. Amen.

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; mercy and truth go before Your face. Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!

For You are the glory of their strength, and in Your favor our horn is exalted.

Psalm 24:7-10
Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.

A Well-Lit Temple

The Light of the Son

Imagine, that God would make us in His image to reflect His glory and His praise. Fallen short of that glory, Jesus died to save us and rose again that we might me justified by faith in Him.
   "Whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed." To demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. (Romans 3:25 & 26)
   Having chosen us to be the temple of the Holy Ghost, His light needs to be seen in us, shining forth into a world of darkness, causing men to be drawn to God through our witness and lifestyle.
If the windows of the temple are stained and cloudy and there's debris at the door, the world would question who really lives there, and some may stumble on the path to finding out.
   Let us walk uprightly before God in all matters pertaining to life. Holding fast to sound doctrine, having no part in the works of darkness from which we have escaped by the marvelous grace of our loving Father. Giving no place to the devil with his trickery and craftiness, but rather yielding our members to God who is able to keep us from falling. 

The Lord, our Strength and our Redeemer

Scripture Meditation: 

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16)

His Glory Fills the Earth!

Just a few days ago, the nation celebrated its Independence with festivities and fireworks. The latter lighting up the sky in a kaleidoscope of awesome color and design. The crowds cheered and everyone was filled with a sense of awe and wonder.

Our merciful God in heaven is about filling the earth with His glory and what a glory it is! It cannot be packaged or sold. He desires for His ways to be known on earth and His faithfulness to all generations. In the midst of our everyday existence, he wants to be ruler of our hearts. He wants us to settle our minds on Him and trust in His awesome name! - He is I AM. His glorious power is changing us from glory to glory and He is able to deliver.


Our God is an awesome God! His lightnings light up the world and causes the earth to bud and to flourish. "For as the earth brings forth its bud, and the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations." (Isaiah 61:11) 


God bless you and cause you to grow in the knowledge of Him. Knowing Him is eternal life.


Lord God, let Your kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.
