God is glorious! Both Old and New Testaments declare He is a God of glory. In 1 Chronicles 29:11
(“Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory ….”) God’s glory is emphatically affirmed.
The glory of the Son is described in John 1:14 (“And the Word [the Son] became flesh, and dwelt among
us, and we saw His glory ….”) and in Hebrews 1:3 (“He [the Son] is the radiance of the glory of God and
the exact imprint of His nature, and He [the Son] upholds the universe by the word of His [the Son’s]
power. After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.

Question: Do we deserve glory? What could I have done or ever do to deserve glory? As a sinner, there
is no chance I could be glorious in God’s sight. Yet Paul writes of us in Romans 8:17 that (“and if
[adopted] children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with Him
in order that we may also be glorified with Him.”) So we too will be glorified. Truly, there is no other like
our God!
