The God of glory is easier for me to comprehend than the God of the universe. Glory means beauty, or high renown or honor won by notable achievements. This would include the beauty of creation, critters and people but more so, the glory of sending God the Son, Jesus Christ, to live in human form among us. For all of this we offer praise, worship, and thanksgiving. Worship is clearer to me than the Hubble Telescope.
C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) wrote, “The sense that in this universe we are treated as strangers, the longing to be acknowledged, to meet with some response, to bridge some chasm that yawns between us and reality, is part of our inconsolable secret. And surely, from this point of view, the promise of glory, in the sense described, becomes highly relevant to our deep desire. For glory means good report with God, acceptance by God, response, acknowledgment, and welcome into the heart of things. The door on which we have been knocking all our lives will open at last.”
