Jesus said, “Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him.” John 13:31
This isn’t exactly culture’s style of glory, is it? In a culture caught up with big shiny moments, rising to the top and high levels of achievement, it’s hard for the human mind to understand the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross. Laying down one’s life for others is a stark contrast to the way we naturally live, but we mustn’t forget that it IS the call of every believer.
In today’s podcast episode, we’re talking about what glory actually looks like.
Jesus equated glory with doing the Father’s will and, through His example; He challenges each of us to live in the same way. But the cross doesn’t just challenge our way of life, it calls us to redefine our idea of glory.
Glory: to lay down one’s life so the Father’s will may be accomplished.
“What we do is very little. But it is like the little boy with a few loaves and fishes. Christ took that little and increased it. He will do the rest. What we do is so little that we many seem to be constantly failing. But so did he fail. He met with apparent failure on the Cross. But unless the seeds fall into the earth and die, there is no harvest.” –Dorothy Day
