A worship song by David Ruis. The glory of the Lord represents His presence and power, and in the Old Testament, there were numerous occasions of His glory filling the temple. Whenever the temple was filled with God's glory, the people were awestruck and no one could approach it - and they worshipped Him. Whenever the people sinned gravely against God, His glory departed from the temple, and judgment came upon them.
In John 1:14, we read of the glory of God coming among us in the form of Jesus His Son, the One and Only who came from the Father full of grace and truth. And the people did not recognise and receive Him for who He really was (John 1:10-11). Instead, they despised and rejected Him, sentencing Him unjustly to the cross. But for all who believed in Him, He gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12-13). Now, His glory dwells in us through the Holy Spirit.
Let us pray for God's Spirit to continually fill us, and for His presence to go before us in the things we do for His Name. And may all who see give praise and glory to God, for He uses the weak to shame the strong.
