Greater Weight of Glory

The opportunities for growth in Christ are directly connected to our growing capacity to carry His glory. The Bible makes it clear that we move from glory to glory as by the Holy Spirit’s work in our lives (2 Cor 3:17).

 Ever increasing glory sets a platform for promotion and advancement on all spiritual levels.

 What can never be attained through book knowledge can be reached through revelation inside our spiritual man. We want to see the way Jesus saw and do the works Jesus did, because He came as our example. 

 We have assumed that because Jesus was the Son of God, the ministry stuff came natural to Him. I believe that Jesus set aside His Divine Nature and grew just like we grow in favor with God and man (Lk 2:52). He walked with human perception and needed to release faith in His Father and trust in His promises. His greatest benefit was that He knew that His Father had put all things under His power, that He had come from God and would return to God (Jn 13:3). Yet, He still moved with human limitation under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.

 That same power has been made available to us through the Holy Spirit (Jn 14:12).

 I was at a conference the other day where the leaders all had various colored badges that seemed to give access to different duties and places in the building. At one point the conference host who had the purple badge asked if another gal would follow him into a resource center. The comment from the gal was ”I do not have an access badge for that room” and the leader simply stated, “that’s okay you are with me!” Her access was made available through the leaders authority. Without hesitation she followed him into a formerly unknown realm of authority… the resource room.

God’s resource rooms are available to us if we will follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

 I love the fact; that Jesus when baptised by John, opened the Heavens with His prayer (Lk 3:21-22) and released a new realm of glory by the Holy Spirit’s presence and leadership. Immediately He is filled and led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit (Lk 4:1). Then He returns in the power of the Spirit to Galilee to teach and be glorified by many (Lk 4:14-15). Notice then that He comes into Nazareth to announce that the glory (anointing) had increased to such a degree that He now had the capacity to break captivity, heal the sick and preach the acceptable year of the Lord’s favor (Lk 4:16-21). 

 I want to propose that Jesus was increasing in His capacity to carry glory as He listened to His Father’s voice and did what His Father was doing.
