1. Is the glory of God the highest treasure of your life

Is the glory of God the highest treasure of your life, on the horizon of your future? As you look into your future, is the glory of God fully known, fully experienced, fully displayed in your life? Is that the biggest treasure on the horizon of your life. And the reason I put it like that is because of Romans 5:2 where Paul, I think, expresses the heart of a Christian like this, „We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. So, how is your hope? What is your hopeYour hope, if you’re a Spirit transformed Bible shaped Christian, would be to look into your future knowing all your utter failures right now:

  • You fail to see Him as He is
  • You fail to enjoy Him as He is
  • You fail to show Him as He is

We all do. We feel absolute failures. That’s what we are, compared to what we ought to be, WHICH IS WHY THE CROSS IS SO INCREDIBLY PRECIOUS TO US. But, we’re looking out there. There’s gonna come a day, when He prays for us that we would see His glory and we would be able to love it with the love of the Father for the Son.

OH, FOR A DAY WHEN WE WILL BE DONE WITH SINNING

and

NOT FALL SHORT ANYMORE IN SEEING HIM AS HE IS

and LOVING HIM FOR WHAT HE IS WORTH.

That’s my first question to you. Is the glory of God the most precious treasure on the horizon of your future?

2. Is the glory of grace the sweetest news for your guilt ridden soul?

Is the glory of grace the sweetest news for your guilt ridden soul you brought in here tonight? I know when he preaches, I am gonna feel as guilty as can be. Right? Me too. Now what? If that’s all we did, make people feel guilty, we would only do have the Gospel. He made the universe to get glory for grace. Is it the sweetest sound, taste of your guilt ridden soul?

3. Is the glory of Christ in your life the present,

personal embodiment of the grace of God?

I mean: Do you know Him, do you love Him, is He close to you? Do you talk to Him? Do you read the Bible, He’s talking to you. When you pray, He’s talking to you, through Him to the Father. He’s a friend, „I’ll be with you to the end of the age.” Do you know Him like that? He wants to be known like that.

4. Is the glory of the cross the saddest

& happiest reality in your life, your redeemed soul?

You see what I’m doing now, I’m moving from the glory of God, to the glory of grace, glory of Christ, now I’m ending with the glory of the cross. Eternity is not going to be unhappy. It’s not. But, I do believe it’s gonna have a memory to it. that puts an exquisiteness on our pleasures that could only come from a touch of sadness, that will not be sad. You’re just gonna have to work on that one. I’m groping for the glory here.
