    A Life Of Glory
    And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them;
    that they may be one, even as we are one (John 17:22).
    The Lord Jesus in our theme verse prays for the
    Church and says, “…the glory which thou gavest me
    I have given them….” He’s talking about us, the new creation;
    He has given to us the glory the Father gave to Him.
    Remarkably, He didn’t say, “I shall give them,” but “I have
    given them.” This is not a promise, but a present hour reality.
    What kind of a life should you be living then?
    Peter the apostle tells us about the “…sufferings of
    Christ, and the glory that should follow” (1 Peter 1:11). Being
    born again, you’ve been born into a life of glory. Jesus has
    given you His glory; your life therefore, is a life of glory.
    What this means is that you’re blessed beyond measure; your
    progress in life is limitless. No nation or government can put
    a limit on you. So, you can lift your vision; look beyond
    the horizon and say, “Praise God! My life is a life of glory.
    Hallelujah! I’m making progress; I’m moving forward. I’ll never
    be defeated.”
    Addressing His disciples in John 14:23, Jesus said, ”…If
    a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will
    love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode
    with him.” This is what you got when you received the Holy
    Spirit. The Holy Spirit brings you the presence of the Father
    and the presence of Jesus. He’s the glory of God and has
    brought that glory into your life.
    The Bible says “…Christ in you, the hope of glory”
    (Colossians 1:27). Because He lives in you, no sickness,
    disease and infirmity can thrive in your body. His presence in
    your life is the sure guarantee of a victorious and glorious life.
    Learn to trust in Him, and follow His Word. Then you can rest
    in Him and watch your life gravitate from glory to glory.
    PRAYER
    Thank you blessed Father, for
    making my life beautiful and
    glorious by the Holy Ghost who
    lives in me! I rejoice because your
    Spirit brings me your manifested
    presence always. And I know I’ll
    live and walk in glory, victory and
    prosperity every day, in Jesus’
    Name. Amen.
