But let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the Lord. (Jer 9:24)
If we ever want to glory or feel triumphant about something, the Lord tells us that we should exult about knowing and understanding Him! If you are a Christian, you already know the Lord and are in a relationship with Him. If you don’t understand Him well, though, then you need to read more of the Bible because it tells us all about God.
The Bible tells us about Jesus, the son of God, who performed signs and wonders; and in doing so, displayed and demonstrated His glory!
This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him. (Joh 2:11)
Paul, the apostle, endured many trials as a servant of Jesus Christ. (Rom 1:1; 2 Cor 11:24-28) But he said that none of the negative things that he endured could be compared with the glory to be revealed in him.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Rom 8:18)
Paul assuredly manifested glory in the same way that Jesus did—through performing signs and wonders.
Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them. (Acts 19:11-12)
We, believers, are blessed in so many ways. We have been made righteous, and have been reconciled to God. God’s glory will shine through us as we live for Him on earth, and perform signs and wonders in Jesus’ Name.
To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Col 1:27)
When He comes to be glorified in His saints and to be marveled at in all those who have believed. (2 Th 1:10)
The Lord will be marveled at IN all those who have believed because of the impact that believers have upon the world. Display God’s glory, and rejoice in Christ!
