The glory of God is a central theme of genuine biblical religion. It is the highest (though biblically, not the only) motivation for God’s activity in time and eternity. Indeed, as we will see, there is a sense in which it is the essence of who God is. As the second Person of the Trinity, the Lord Jesus Christ perfectly incarnates and expresses the glory of God in a human body. What is this glory, and as we celebrate the Lord’s Incarnation this week, what is its relationship to the two comings of Christ to earth? This week’s sermon explored the theme of glory and how God is glorified in the manifested glory of His beloved Son. Because this sermon was a survey of multiple texts, this reflection will differ slightly from my usual pattern.
