And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.
If we hear someone say, I should be glorified! I want glory! we might think this person is arrogant, entitled, selfish, self-involved…all the words in this category. Yet Jesus asks of it! He asks to be glorified! He wants the glory.
What makes his desire not only okay but good and worthy to be followed?
His glory WILL POINT BACK TO THE FATHER. If you get glory, who gets the recognition?
His glory IS ROOTED FROM THE BEGINNING of a good and good creation. Where does your desire for glory stem from?
His glory is a CONTINUATION OF PAST GLORY. Where in your past have you received recognition and deserves to be developed?
His glory stems from DOING THE WORK, LIVING OUT HIS CALLING AND PURPOSES! Are you doing the work? Are you tapped into your purpose? Are you felling a story beyond yourself?
We need to first answer these questions. And once we’re tapped in, demand that GLORY. Because it’s not a sudden change; it’s simply a recognition that you’re already in the GLORY.
