The Glory Gap

The Glory Gap

“The Glory Gap”

Luke 2:8-14; Matt. 5:14-16

Don’t ask what God’s glory means.

Ask how God’s glory can be seen.

His word

His creation

Jesus

God’s love comes to us

So his glory can flow through us.

Light belongs on a stand

We exist to glorify God.

The glory of God is man fully alive.

    Thank you for fanning the cooling embers into a warming light! I needed to hear your message, even if it was several weeks after Christmas. Thank you, Lord, for giving this message to John so I could hear it.
