Down time

Having some down time after a long weekend and a long few days after that.

Soul Sista was fantastic. "Christ in me, the hope of glory" something I understand a bit more. The bible refers this statement as a mystery, probably because we are pretty good at using jargon. Hope and glory mean different things now to when they were written. It's still largely a mystery, but I'm quite happy with that.

I know Christ is in me, I know my hope is in the cross and the resurrection, so the glory bit remains a mystery (to be honest I wasn't listening!).

Any ideas?

Your own Random Bible Verse box today gives a hint. II Peter 1:16 speaks of us being "eyewitnesses of His majesty". What greater glory is there?

Back again.
After I read and commented earlier, I read another passage of Scripture which reminded me of your question:

Proverbs 19:11 says, "The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory yo pass over a transgression".

If that kind of behaviour is not a result of Christ within us, as a man who holds onto grudges for years and years, I don't know what is.
