Yesterday my husband poised a question to me and I have been searching for the answer ever since. He said what does Glory mean?
Is it a place? Or is it a place of well being? Or is it a thing or person?
We hear so much about "Old Glory" which is our flag. Then you hear the term "Glory Of God", and give "God the Glory".
The following definitions are a few of what I found:
Glory is the manifestation of God's presence.
Glory is also an optical phenomenon produced by light reflected toward its source by a cloud of uniformly-sized water droplets.
Glory can be an effusion of light around a saintly person; ex: Halo
Glory also means praise, honor, bliss,& splendor.
What would your definition be of Glory?
God is glorious! What is this glory? How do we conceive of this glory? The glory of God has surely been revealed in the Bible with brightness, light, fire, and shining.
The glory of God in essence is "all that God is!" Everything about God is glorious!
His love is glorious! ---it's glorious to be loved by God.
His forgiveness is glorious --- to be washed clean from our sins by the blood of Jesus.
His grace is glorious - - While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
His righteousness is glorious.
His truth is glorious.
His purity is glorious.
His kindness is glorious.
His universe is glorious.
His Heaven is glorious.
His way is glorious.
His creation is glorious.
His Word is glorious.
Glory, glory, glory - - - every quality that is desirable is God. His glory is all that God --- His fullness. From Genesis to Revelation the unfolding of God's glory is revealed.
Think on these things
