#159 The Glory of God is Man Fully Alive

Many have wondered why Jesus didn’t address the corruption, oppression, and cruelty in the governments of his day. He didn’t even work to change inequities in his culture!

He didn’t correct the cruelty of Rome, although he addressed it. He didn’t talk about the oppression of women, but he treated them with dignity and respect.

He didn’t interfere with those in power because he wanted us to know that the remedy for our problems wasn’t in external fixes.

The reforms he came to set up had to start with the heart. Our regeneration must be individual and internal. He came to give spiritual heart transplants to everyone who realized they needed one and asked for it.

The only power that will work to bring about his kingdom is his Spirit healing and renewing, restoring the minds and hearts of broken humanity, bringing them back into oneness with God. All we have to do is want it–choose it.

To everyone who wants it, he gives power to become sons and daughters of God. This is our glory–to become fully alive–truly us.

The glory of God is his character of love. The power that heals our brokenness, changing our characters into ones of love, is from Him, His Spirit, and His words. Meditating on Jesus life (imagining yourself there) allows you to know God, believe, and experience His love.
