Thursday Devotion: Glory 




Is it possible to live with a singular, all-encompassing passion for Christ’s supremacy in every aspect of life, including work, relationships, and mundane tasks? Can we find unity and fulfillment in God while still engaging in everyday activities? These questions prompt us to consider the significance of Jesus' death on the cross. Living for God's glory means living for the glory of Christ crucified.


Galatians 6:14 is a powerful verse that emphasizes the centrality of the cross in our lives: "May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world." In other words, our only source of boasting and joy should be the cross of Jesus Christ. This singular idea, goal, and passion should be our sole focus for rejoicing.


Christ embodies God's glory, and his sacrificial death on the cross is at the heart of that glory. Through his sacrifice, he has obtained every blessing for us, both in this life and the next. We do not deserve any of it, but he has graciously given it all. Because of the cross, those loved by God are destined to become his children. Because of the cross, God's wrath is appeased. Because of the cross, all guilt is washed away, sins are forgiven, perfect righteousness is credited to us, the love of God is poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, and we are being transformed into the likeness of Christ.


Therefore, every joy and pleasure in this life and the next, as long as it does not become idolatry, serves as a testament to value of the cross of Christ—the radiant center of God's glory. A life centered on the cross, exalting the cross, and saturated with the cross is a life that brings glory to God.
