The Glory of the Lord
Luke 2:9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.
The Prophet Isaiah said, “The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” (Isaiah 40:5) Many years before Jesus was born God proclaimed that the glory of the Lord would be revealed to all people, and when Jesus was born it was.
The Apostle Paul called Jesus, “the Lord of glory.” (1 Corinthians 2:8) James, the half-brother of Christ, called Jesus, ‘the Lord of glory.” (James 2:1) And referring to Jesus, the Apostle Peter said, “To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen!” (2 Peter 3:8)
All glory belongs to the Lord, but there is something truly amazing we need to understand about His glory. Paul writes, “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 3:18)
As a believer in Jesus Christ every time you look in a mirror you see the glory of the Lord. Why? Because as a believer you are slowly, from glory to glory, being transformed into the image of Christ. The glory that came into the world that first Christmas is now reflected in you, and when Christ appears you will also appear with Him in glory. (Colossians 3:4)
