Thought for the Day 03 January 2014- John Morris The God of Glory (1979)

"God made all His goodness, and His mercy, and His grace, pass by before us in Jesus. But not only did the Lord Jesus show forth God’s glory; in a very real sense he imparts something of that same glory to his followers if they will receive it. “We all, with unveiled face reflecting as a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory” (2 Corinthians 3:18). True, we have this treasure in earthen vessels, but let us not shrink from accepting what the Lord can do in transforming us into his image. The glory which the Father had given him, he imparted to his disciples (John 17:22), and he will do no less for us if we have faith to recognise the glory of God in the face of our Master and seek to show it forth day by day."
