"Godliness" (εὐσέβεια) is a word of the later apostolic age; besides this Epistle (in which it occurs four times) and a speech of St. Peter's in. Speaking of happiness, Pope Pius XI pointed out in his encyclical Quas Primas, in which he established the feast of Christ the King, that our Lord is the pledge of his peoples happiness book author of wrote “Oh, what happiness would be Ours if all men, individuals, families, and nations, would but let themselves be governed by Christ!”.

There is such a thing as spiritual sight; and the first thing spiritual sight sees is Christ in his glory. Four, what will beholding Christ’s glory do to your life Read again 2 Cointhians Beholding Christ’s glory will make you more and more like him.

Slowly, often painfully slowly, God is changing his people into the likeness of his. This pledge of the future resurrection comes from the fact that the flesh of the Son of Man, given as food, is his body in its glorious state after the resurrection. With the Eucharist we digest, as it were, the “secret” of the resurrection.

Verse - Even in him - in whom we wore also made his inheritance. This is the literal rendering of ἐκληρώθημεν, and it is more expressive than the A.V.,"In whom also we have obtained an inheritance." God taking us for his own heritage involves more than our getting an inheritance from God (see Deuteronomy"The Lord hath taken you to be unto him a people of inheritance").

God loves to help the preacher who is desperate to make the word plain for the holy happiness of his people, by the blood of Jesus, for the glory of God. He will help you. () This is a direct quote from John Piper’s T4G sermon: “Why Expositional. Jesus Christ lives in this Book in all the Glory of His Eternal Person as well as the Glory of His Father.

Any man that will ever understand this great “Masterpiece” must learn to stand on his spiritual tiptoes and walk through its dramas like walking on rose petals.

Chapter 2. The Glory of the Person of Christ, as the only Representative of God unto the Church. Chapter 3. The Glory of Christ in the mysterious Constitution of his Person. Chapter 4. The Glory of Christ in his Susception of the Office of a Mediator – First in his Condescension.

Chapter 5. The Glory of Christ in this Love. Chapter 6. God’s life lies in his glory, and his glory cannot increase or decrease, for his glory is infinite, unchangeable, eternal, and so on. This glory belongs to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit because each person shares in the divine essence.

“Having passed from this world to the Father, Christ gives us in the Eucharist the pledge of glory with him,” the Catechism states. “Participation in the Holy Sacrifice identifies us with his Heart, sustains our strength along the pilgrimage of this life, makes us long for eternal life, and unites us even now to the Church in heaven, the.

One of the ways that the glory of God is revealed is through His people—those who come to know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We read at the end of 2 Corinthians 3 the words that, “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.”.

The glory that rested upon Christ is a pledge of the love of God for us. It tells us of the power of prayer,—how the human voice may reach the ear of God, and our petitions find acceptance in the courts of heaven.

By sin, earth was cut off from heaven, and alienated from its communion; but Jesus has connected it again with the sphere of glory.

Thus He become incarnate - as Christ. And so Christ represents a 'crisis' in the life of God. In and through Christ, God learns to fully love humankind.

And with loves comes forgiveness. Having experienced the hardships of life, Jesus sets out to guide people in a new direction - with a new commandment: to love one s: In the book, Owen strongly argues that the glory of Christ is the central thing the Christian should aim at seeing.

It is by beholding Christ's glory that the Christian is truly changed and becomes more spiritual/5(). The glory of Christ is a glory of His perfect humanity and His undiminished deity in one Person. Luke alone tells us that it was while Jesus was praying that “the appearance of His face became different, and His clothing became white and gleaming” ().

In R.C. Sproul’s book The Glory of Christ, he focuses on the moments of great glory in the life of Christ–a life marked by so much that was inglorious and not at all befitting the King of Glory.

A crucial aspect of Jesus’ humiliation was the hiddenness of His glory. His identity was often concealed. Philippians Context. 16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.

17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. 18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians ).Glory is a big concept for a God bigger than we will ever be able to comprehend within the limitations of our humanity. He is divine: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

He is the One True, Triune, God. He is omnipotent and sovereign, compassionate and good. In our search for justice, He. “When we live a good life, following Jesus Christ's teachings, not only are we prepared to live with God and our families forever, but we are also happy. We aren't here to endure life, we are here to enjoy life.

This true, everlasting happiness is found through Jesus Christ and making good choices.”. “O Sacred Banquet, in which Christ is received as food, the memory of his Passion is renewed, the soul is filled with grace, and a pledge of the life to come is.

Owen writes: “Only a sight of his glory, and nothing else, will truly satisfy God’s people One of the greatest privileges the believer has, both in this world and for eternity, is to behold the glory of Christ” (2).

As we behold the glory of Christ, we are gradually being transformed into his image (2. A Cause to Glory in Christ Jesus “Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith, so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again.” - Philippians – When Jesus Christ comes again to the earth, He will do the following things: He will cleanse the earth.

When Jesus comes again, He will come in power and great glory. At that time the wicked will be destroyed. All things that are corrupt will be burned, and the earth will be cleansed by fire (see D&C –25). He will judge His people. Whose glory.

The glory of the people whom He has chosen in Christ. That we bear in mind first of all. God has chosen, before the foundation of the world, a certain people unto Himself.

These He chose to glory. These He determined to receive salvation from sin and to have a place in heavenly glory. When our eyes are fixed on God’s glory, we feel the majesty of His creations and the grand scope of His work on this earth.

We feel humble to be participants in His latter-day kingdom. If we pause and quietly reflect on our role in all of this, we will come to know that placing our egos and our vain ambitions on the sacrificial altar is one.

Christ in me, the Hope of glory, I am His, and He is mine. Christ does indeed live in each believer and fills and controls as allowed by the individual. But for those filled with His abundance, He provides the certain “hope” of glory.

We have assurance of salvation, adoption, grace, Spirit-filled life, and eternal glory as we are in Christ. God has provided a way for all people, not just scholars, to know that the Bible is the Word of God. John Piper has devoted his life to showing us that the glory of God is the object of the soul’s happiness.

; Col. People tend to use escape responses when they are more interested in avoiding unpleasant people or situations than in. Rather, it is a life that reflects the attributes of God, a lifestyle that is consumed with putting His glory on display.

Like a city built on a hill or a lamp set on a lampstand, glorifying God entails letting the light of the attributes of God shine before men so that others will join with us.

― John Owen, quote from The Glory of Christ “No man shall ever behold the glory of Christ by sight hereafter who does not in some measure behold it here by faith.” “The pretended desires of many to behold the glory of Christ in heaven, who have no view of it by faith while they are here in this world, are nothing but self-deceiving.

Paul is simply saying that Christ had the “form, appearance, look or likeness” of God in that Christ had the divine nature of God. The same thing is said in other Scriptures. Heb. says, “And He (Jesus – the Son of God) is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His.

He gives us his titles of honour as a pledge or surety of the full performance, even those titles of Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. As it was his glory that he gave the rise and beginning to the world and to his church, it will be his glory to finish the work begin, and not to leave it imperfect.

16 have never failed to thank God for you and to remember you in my prayers. 17 May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you.“For God sent his Son into the world, that we might live through him” (1 John ).

That is, through the righteousness which he should accomplish, and the death that he should die. (2.) There is eternal life in Christ; life that is endless; life for ever and ever.

“He hath given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son” (1 John ). “To behold the glory of Christ is ammunition against unbelief and power for sanctification.” (75) “Every sight of Christ we take is an attack on evert delight of sin left in our hearts.” (79) “The life of Christ is divine glory, and as we behold the glory of his life.
