Two days ago we looked at “The Wonder of Wonders” that God by His grace saved us from the guilt and penalty of our sins and made us “saints” and “children of God”. But consider the glory of God that is revealed in creation alone.
“The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork” (Psalm 19:1), and, “O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” (Psalm 8:9).
This is not all that we should consider about the glory of God. “Thus says the Lord: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, and what is the place of my rest? All these things my hand has made, and so all these things came to be, declares the Lord” (Isaiah 66:1–2). He desires a place within His creation where He can dwell that is in perfect harmony with His glory and character. How can this be in a sin cursed world?
We who “were dead in the trespasses and sin in which [we] once walked” are “made…alive together with Christ” so that “in Him [we] also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit” (Ephesians 2:1, 5, 22). God has done this only with that part of His creation that has the capacity of communion with Him. That is why Paul says twice in chapter one that we “might be to the praise of His glory” (1:12, 14). Let us live for this purpose!
