Today’s message from John 11:38-44 is now on the web. You can listen to the audio here.
Here is the quote from Jonathan Edwards about the meaning of the term glory:
The word glory denotes sometimes what is internal. When the word is used to signify what is within, or in the possession of the subject, it very commonly signifies excellency, dignity, or worthiness of regard. This, according to the Hebrew idiom, is, as it were, the weight of a thing, as that by which it is heavy; as to be light is to be worthless, without value, contemptible. . . . And the weight of a thing arises from its magnitude, and its specific gravity conjunctly; so the word glory is very commonly used to signify the excellency of a person or a thing, as consisting either in greatness, or in beauty, or in both conjunctly (as quoted in Piper, God’s Passion for His Glory, p. 231).
I mentioned this morning that I would post a link to Francis Chan’s message, Think Hard, Be Humble. Turns out I already did a blog post about it! To read it and watch the message click here.
Praise God Jesus gives the answer to the canyon question that we may be delivered from ultimately dying!
Just finished listening to Francis Chan’s message. Thanks for always feeding us with resources to stretch us in the faith and make us grow in grace and increase in Christlikeness. May I learn to love you more in the coming year and encourage you to keep on keeping on until “the finish line!”
Glad you got to hear it. Good stuff, eh?
