"And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him. And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law, then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said, "Now Lord, thou dost let Thy bondservant depart in peace, according to Thy word; for my eyes have seen Thy salvation, which Thou hast prepared in the presence of all people, a light of revelation to the Gentiles, and the GLORY of Thy people Israel." Luke 2:25-32 (NASB)
DEFINITION OF GLORY
: brilliance, splendor : great beauty : magnificence; majesty: esteem : weight
Jesus, You are the GLORY! You are magnificent, majestic, brilliant! You have great beauty and splendor! You are GLORIOUS! There is no way to describe how majestic You are! Jesus, You are truly INDESCRIBABLE! I am so blown away by all the names that describe You. I have studied over 200 names for You - and have never even used the word GLORY! I am "unable to recount or tell fully" who You are! Glory means the "weight" of who You are! The "weight" of who You are is so MUCH MORE than my mind can grasp! I can't even find words to describe Your GLORY. Simeon says You are the GLORY of Israel! The shepherds worshipped You, the Magi fell down before You. Simeon lifted you in praise to God as He acknowledged that You were the One sent for the salvation of the world! You alone are worthy of my adoration and affection! Open my eyes to see Your GLORY!!
Worship and praise Jesus for His GLORY!
