I open an email and contained there in is a wonder of the unexpected. In the form of a video, I am affected to celebrate what is planted in every person. A real image of heaven or as I like to think of it … a new earth, a place where the uniqueness of all and every, is put on display for awe and cheering. I hear passages to a new world from passages of an old text. Telling words - "When he shall come to be glorified in his saints and to be marveled at in all of them". Marveled at … in all of them, how can this be? Surely in some of them… no, it is in all of them, those we never believed could have this kind of substance and in reality who don't believe it themselves. Those who are pretending to have something great even betraying their own confidence as they foolishly boast while doubting it all the same. And the reality - they don't know the glory within and would of course be in awe themselves if they could see it.
The confession, the repentance - we are amazingly and wonderfully made. Can we say this along with a shepherd boy who took on a goliath and became a king (or was he already a king in boys clothing)? Does the creator say in the forming of every one…and thing "it is good, it is beautiful, amazing and wonderful are the works of my hands."
In the garden words directed to Papa "I am glorified in them". Seeing in them, the refection of his own image and their own image. The angels strain over the fence to get a peak at this display. "With this in mind we constantly pray that …by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith… so that the Lord Jesus may be glorified in you and you in him…"
And the video that prompted it all - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lp0IWv8QZY
