“I Am Glorified in Them.”   1 comment

Jno. 17, 10

His work finished, Christ was going away.  His disciples were to abide here.  They are important to him and to the world.  They are to glorify him.

1.  In their salvation–this demonstrates his power to forgive sins.  It establishes his divinity–“Who can forgive sins but God only?”  He does, therefore he is God.

2.  In their lives.  Obedience to his word manifests the wisdom and beauty thereof.  “My word is truth.”  “The truth shall make you free.”  Hence he is glorified in a Godly life.  They set the face for others.

3.  In their labors.  They manifest a spirit foreign to the world.  This reveals the beauty of what he inspires.  Their preaching exalts his name among the heathen.  This the charm of the Acts of the Apostles and of all preaching.

4.  Their presence in  Heaven will add to his glory before the angels.  The church is “the fullness of him that filleth all in all.”

How important to Christ and the world is the work of his children in all places and ages!!
