Winning Wisdom: The Glory Of The Son


Topic: The Glory Of The Son [Wednesday, 9th August 2017]

And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory. Romans 9:23

One of the many things a son whose father is wealthy and has a conglomerate that he is controlling looks forward to is the time his father will bequeath his position to him. The father also looks forward to the time when he will also give the control of his establishment to his son, so he can take a deserved rest. Our Father in heaven did the same thing with us. He has bequeathed His conglomerate - His Kingdom on earth - for us to control and expand, because every conglomerate seeks to expand its market share and income.

The glory of the Son is to meet the expectations of the Father, as regards the running and expansion of the conglomerate. This is key to us. Our glory is the expansion of the kingdom of God. And this expansion is in adding people to our kingdom. Paul said to the Thessalonica church: "for ye are our glory and joy" (1 Thessalonians 2:20). Again he said to the Corinthian church: "...death worketh in us, but life in you" (2 Corinthians 4:12). So, the son has to work his socks out to produce the goods and makes his father happy. That's what Paul was telling them. "We are working hard, and dying physically so that the life of God will be produced in you."

We have nothing to glory in if it it not about the expansion of the kingdom that has been given us. Our Father has schooled us for this sole purpose - to take over His kingdom here on earth and expand it. That's why He gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit. That's why He gave us skills and talents. And we must use these to expand the Lord's business, make it more profitable while enhancing its quality. With these being done, our glory, which is the people that are added to our kingdom, will exceed expectation. Remember, "they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever" (Daniel 12:3).

Keep winning daily.

Prayer:

Dear Father, thank You for counting me worthy to be entrusted with Your conglomerate. Help me to expand it and make it more profitable by the working of Your Spirit in me, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
