For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned (encompassed) him with glory and honor. (Pslam 8:5)
Not only has God given us His glory, but He also crowned us with His glory or at least he did in the beginning. The glory of God was Adam’s clothing. Adam’s whole being was glorious and radiated. Sadly, “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
Adam chose to take off God’s glory and put on Satan’s lying rags.
BUT GOD!!! He had a different plan. He had a better plan. God himself stepped out of heaven, removed His Glory coat and put-on man. Jesus came as a baby, but as a man at the cross, he bought back our right to don the glory. I discovered that we got new coats for Christmas, too. It’s been ours since salvation. Now, when we choose Jesus as our Savior and Lord, God only sees us through the lens of Jesus in all His glory.
Why did he give us His glory? John 17:23 tells us…”so that we may be perfect, complete, I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.” We become like our father. People call it a “spitting image.” We reflect the very image of our Father and His glory.
I enCOURAGE you to wear your crown, coat and the very image of your Daddy to draw others to Him for His glory!
