Today’s Truth: Glorification: Life with Jesus

Jesus pleads for His followers to be with Him in heaven in John 17:24: “Father, I want these whom you have given me to be with me where I am. Then, they can see all the glory you gave me because you loved me even before the world began!” He wanted them to experience glorification as He would experience through His resurrection. He wanted them to see His glory and the love you have poured out on His from the beginning of time!

Merriam Webster defines glorification as, ” to make glorious by bestowing honor, praise, or admiration,” or “to elevate to celestial glory.” After Jesus’ death and resurrection, He walked on earth again and then was raised to heaven to sit at the right-hand of God. He was given all glory and honor. He made us sons and daughters of the true King through His suffering on the cross as Hebrews 2:10 states, “For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering.”

This is glorification! It is the product of sanctification, the end result of our faith. We are promised heaven, an eternity with God the Father and Jesus the Savior! While it is not time for us to experience glorification, we can still live in His glory here on earth through our worship, our service, and our lifestyle.
