Carriers of His Glory

“….Light that came from everywhere drove shadows from the room….”
Don Francisco; “He’s Alive” album – 1977


“….. afflictions eclipsed by Glory….”
David Crowder Band; “How He Loves” – 2009


“…..When You walk into the room….”
Bryan and Katie Torwait; “Kingdom Come” album – 2013


I invite you to google the entire lyrics to each of the above songs.
Consider, if you will, John 20:19-23. In this Resurrection Day account, the Apostles
received a commissioning from the Lord. Imagine with me what it must have been
like to see Jesus literally walk through the wall of the dark, enclosed room. Envision
the brilliant radiance of His Glory. Hear Him decree and declare “Peace” over them.
Feel the power and smell the fragrance when He breathed on them and said
“Receive the Holy Spirit.”


From fear to faith. From confusion to clarity. From weakness and doubt to strength
and confidence. Sent ones; commissioned with the full backing and authority of The
Sender.


Now, please consider this: Because if you’re reading this, I’m assuming you’re a
follower of Jesus. As such, the same commission extends to you - and to me.
We are carriers of His Glory. My prayer is that He would release a fresh revelation
- even right now and repeatedly ongoing - of that truth, in accordance with Ephesians 3:14-21.


Release Your Glory, Lord, in, through, and all around us. May we be contagious
change agents. May we be disrupters of darkness. May we walk in authority,
confidence, and humility. In Jesus’ Name, amen.


Grace and peace….rm
