WEEK 36: GLORY

It has been said that the glory of God is intelligence. What a remarkable statement – remarkable when we come to realize that Christ is different from man not in kind but in degree. He is not of a different species, but rather he is the epitome, the maximum of the same species.

God’s glory, Christ’s glory, which sets them so far above us, springs not from their differences, from us but from their similarities with us, from their successful completion of the very experiences we are now undergoing.

All great prophets – from ancient times to modern times, from east to west – have tried (as far as mere words will allow) to describe, or at least to declare, the glory of God. In other words, any who have glimpsed the majesty of God or Christ or of their kingdoms become so overwhelmed that, from then on, they praise and voice the Lord’s glory.

Those of us who are just beginning to know the Savior can begin to feel his glory as we read his words. As we do we should try to realize that even as celestial glory now surrounds him on his heavenly throne, so also did a certain glory surround him in his carpentry shop, and on Peter’s boat, and on the dusty road to Jerusalem. His glory lies in what he knows, in his comprehension of the elements and the spirit, and in his oneness with the Father.

More than that, his glory lies in the great and eternal cause that he shares with the Father – the cause of bringing to pass “the immortality and eternal life of man.”
