HIS GLORY FIRST

HIS GLORY FIRST

“To the praise of the glory of His Grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the Beloved.” (Ephesians 1:6)

I have rejoiced greatly in this passage over the years. What joyous peace there is in the knowledge that He has made us accepted, that He has loved us with no greater a love; that He left His place of glory and took on the fashion of the creature to redeem to Him a bride.

Then I noticed in God’s purpose and wisdom the importance of the first part of this verse. Why did He do these things? Was it for His people’s sake? Yes, they do benefit, but it was chiefly for HIS SAKE, because His character is preeminent. The verse declares “To the praise of the glory - of HIS GRACE...” The subject is HIS glory! May we be enabled to see His glory as preeminent and primary in our view of Him, rather than simply the benefits to ourselves. His glory, in this sense, is His marvelous grace to us, the creatures. Let us remember that Christ had a glory from before the world began and delighted in HIS glory, the Only Begotten of the Father. “And now, O Father, glorify Thou Me with Thine own self with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was.” (John 17:5) “For God, who commanded the Light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” (2 Corinthians 4:6) He is truly, altogether lovely. Amen.
