TOPIC: REVELATION 0F HIS GLORY( 1)

TEXT: John 17:22-23 (NIV)

I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one

LESSONS
The most important thing to note in this sentence is that he gave us the same glory that was given to him by the father. So, if we want to know the glory of the son, we have to study his glory. Knowing him is knowing ourselves in him. Who he is is who we are on this earth. If some said I may give you a car, it is different from I will give you a car. You can see the picture of the car he is using and say, this is the car that I will soon be driving. But if he says ‘’a car”, you don’t know which car yet. We need to know the glory he walked in as a son, that is the same glory that he has redeemed us into.

John 17:22(TLB)

“I have given them the glory you gave me-the glorious unity of being one, as we are”

The secret of partaking of this glory is to know the meaning and implication of partaking of his nature and be one with the Lord. Just like a wife has all the confidence to claim whatever belongs to her husband as her own, so being one with the Lord, being married with the Lord Jesus, we know that we are one with him, who he is is who we are, what he has is what we have.

1 Cor 6:17(NIV)
But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.

If a woman has left all to follow her husband, it is not difficult to say all that her husband has belongs to her. This is the power of consecration in manifesting the glory.

PRAYER ALERT

FATHER, CAUSE ME TO SEE MYSELF IN YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS
