“And the glory which thou gavest me I HAVE GIVEN THEM; that they may be one, even as we are one.” – John 17:20
The Bible says Jesus is the brightness of God’s glory and express image of His person (Hebrews 1:3). Going further, 1 John 4:17 says “As He is, so are we in this world.” Meaning that as Jesus is the expression of God’s glory; you also are the expression of God’s glory. Now you can understand the reason Jesus said in the opening scripture “the glory which thou gavest me I have given them…”
As Christians, we’re the fruit of Christ’s suffering. The Bible talks about the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should be revealed (1 Peter 1:11); we’re that glory; we’re His trophies. We’re the glory Jesus saw that made Him endure the cross and despise the shame (Hebrews 12:2). You’re the glory of God. No wonder the Bible declares that glorious things are spoken of you (Psalm 87:3). Not only have you been brought into the glory of God, you’re the glory of God.
This is not just to excite you, but also to let you know who you are as a child of God. You’ve been called into the life of glory! The glory is yours. See yourself in the glory; see yourself before the glory; see yourself walking in the glory; see yourself carrying the glory; see yourself as the glory!
The Bible says, “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” (2 Corinthians 3:18). The Spirit of God is letting you know that the Word of God is your mirror. As you study the Word, you’re looking at yourself in the mirror of God, and the image of you that you see is actually the glory of God, meaning that your name is ‘the glory of God’. What a confession; to get to know and declare that you’re the glory of God! It’ll put springs in your steps.
You’re the glory of God; that’s why you can’t be defeated nor destroyed! Keep looking at the mirror of God and see who you really are. The Bible says the more you look at the glory in the mirror of God, the more you’re transfigured (2 Corinthians 3:18). You become more like the image of the glory that you see in the mirror. Praise God.
So stop asking God for His glory, because you are His glory! That’s why so many never received the answer of that kind of prayer, because they ask amiss (James 4:3); what you need do is to show others His glory through you.
