From Glory to Glory

From the deepest essence of God comes the glory of Christ radiant in your heart. Move from what is limited and hidden, to what becomes manifest. Let this chapter be a sacred vehicle that transports you into fullness.

Inwardly taste the terms of the comparison so that you can feel the shift to the new and glorious covenant right now being freshly engraved on your warm heart of flesh. In Christ, the veil has been removed. Look into his heavenly face that shines transparently at you. Do this when you pray the Scriptures each day. Jesus abiding inside of you in his Spirit will teach you all things and will take away the veil of ignorance, giving you all wisdom. As you read the Scriptures, you yourself will be moving from glory to glory.

2 Corinthians 3

This is the third of thirteen weeks in the season of Pentecost, Year B
Thursdays in this season are dedicated to 2 Corinthians.

For the next few weeks, I’ll be posting Firestarters from the original version of The Bible Through the Seasons.

  1. The Bible reading from Mark 5 stated this about a man:
    “he would howl and cut himself with stones,”
    (He had obvious problems not unlike many in our society today)
    and his main concern when he encountered Jesus was
    “Swear to God that you won’t torture me!”
    I found it very enlightening to that a hurting person with real issues 1st fear is, that he would not be tortured by God.
    Although, all Jesus did was deliver him from his grave troubles,
    he helped him. Interesting is it not?
    Hurting people need healing and worry whether the cure will be more painful than the issues of dark thought, self inflicted wounds an spiritual lostness!
    It is important that anyone who would try to help hurting people understand what they are dealing with and how to help.
    I am hoping I do a better job of this awesome responsibility in the future. Truth


  2. Your final sentences remind me of this quote of Stephen Covery:

    “Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply. ”

    A little silence after someone expresses hurt gives us the chance to let the feelings sink into us. Then we can respond, rather than simply reply.
