We have not, to this point, seen the glory of God like we see it here.
- The Creation, Exodus, and Temple scenes give us glimpses.
- The resurrection and revelation are only places we see it more clearly.
He’s not who we want Him to be – He is who He says and shows He is.
- Plastic Jesus
- Halo Jesus
- American Jesus
- Coffee Cup Jesus
- Oprah Jesus
- Hipster Jesus
Seeing His glory is the only hope for satisfaction of our souls.
- Beauty – capturing our affection.
- Messiah – calling out our allegiance.
- Father – meeting our desire for a paternal blessing.
In Christ we have the Father’s delight (Gal. 4.4-7)
Seeing His glory is the only hope for the transformation of our lives.
- We see Him primarily with our minds as we listen to Him.
- We see His glory clearly in His death and resurrection.
- The source of our transformation is the Spirit using the Scriptures.
