The Hope of Glory (Colossians 1:26-27)

Today’s scripture: Colossians 1:26-27

On Friday, I mentioned that, in the Old Testament, only the High Priest could enter into the presence of God, but that knowing Jesus gives us access to God and to experience His glory.

Without Jesus, this is a mystery, this glory of knowing God, Father, Son, and Spirit.

Knowing Jesus allows us to experience God’s glory, to experience His will, to experience His love, to experience His power.

It’s no longer a mystery.

It is, instead, a wonderful assurance of God’s desire to be available to us. It’s confidence in knowing that, because Christ is in us, we can truly know the glory of God.

We’re saints in the kingdom, and we are able to know God intimately, with all hope.

Is God still a mystery to you? Ask Him to reveal Himself fully to you. Seek to know Him; He promises you’ll find Him.
