The Hope of Glory

To whom God willed to make known what the wealth of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles is, the mystery that is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Colossians 1:27 (NASB)

We often meet people who are smiling and so friendly that they make us question their attitude. We want to know their motivation to the point of wanting to be like them. Through their positive attitude, they bring happiness to those around them. However, when we hear them talk, we realize that they have more worries than us.

The Bible presents a similar picture of those in Christ Jesus. We may go through difficult trials, but when we know Christ and spend time with Him in prayer and in His word, it affects us and gives us overflowing hope. It is this glorious hope that shapes our attitude, giving us a smile that we cannot even explain to ourselves.

The book of Exodus presents us with a similar story. After spending time with God on the mountain, when Moses came down, the children of Israel could not look at his face, because he carried within him the glory of the living God. Your circumstances do not determine your future. With Christ by your side, whatever your circumstances, your face will shine with joy and gladness, for Christ in you is the hope of glory.

May the grace and peace of God be with you all.
