We See His Glory …
During the season of Lent, we have again had opportunity to take a most meaningful walk with our Lord Jesus. The Lenten journey has taken us past troubling scenes and finally will take us to the foot of the cross where Jesus dies.
Although the world sees only sadness and weakness at the cross, with eyes of faith by God’s grace we see the power and glory of God’s redeeming love in Christ Jesus. Jesus was born for this. It was His perfect, sinless life paying in full the debt of the world’s sins. It is the only way it could be. What a wonder, our sins caused this! What a wonder, our gracious God loves us so much that He planned this, for you and for me!
Jesus’ glory is hidden in the cross, yet with eyes of faith, we see it. On Easter, it is no longer hidden, but shines so brightly. “It is finished,” is replaced by “He is risen!” The triumphant and glorious living Lord Jesus meets His disciples of yesterday and today, to declare His victory and to underline the forgiveness and life it means not only for Him, but also for us!
Hidden in the cross, shining openly on Easter morning, we see our Savior’s glory. In these last weeks of Lent and during the Easter season (and really always), pray that the Holy Spirit may continue to open our eyes of faith to see
our Lord’s glory!
