MANIFESTING THE GLORY WITHIN YOU
II Corinthians 4:3-4, 6 NKJV “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
John 2:11 says, “This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.” In the past two days I’ve shown you from the Scriptures that having been born again, the image of God (that is, the glory of God) is within you. 2 Corinthians 4:3-6 shows us that the glory came by the word when we believed it. Hallelujah
The glory is meant to be manifested. It’s the divine nature of God in us that overcomes every form of darkness in the world. The world eagerly awaits our manifestation, and we’ve got to manifest as Jesus did if we are serious about having them saved.
We are the light of the world! Isaiah 60:1 says to arise, and shine, because the light has come and the glory of God has risen upon us. 2 Corinthians 4:6 says that God has shone in us! Wow! That’s mind-blowing! When you arise and begin to shine, it says that kings shall come to the brightness of your rising! The more of the glory in you, the more you shine. 2 Corinthians 3:18 says that as we continue to behold Him, we are changed into the same image, from glory to glory! Glory to God!
