GLORY in the LORD
BY: RAY PRINZING
“But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.”
“Let not the wise boast himself in his wisdom,
Nor let the mighty boast himself in his might,
Let not the rich boast himself in his riches,
“But in this let the boaster boast himself, in understanding and knowing Me, For I am Jehovah, doing kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth, for in these I have delighted.”
“But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption. That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.”
There is a glorying, a boasting, but it is not in the sphere of our “self,” it is in WHAT HE IS, and what we are becoming through UNION WITH HIM. The new man in Christ Jesus is to shew forth His praise, for what we are becoming in him is actually an extension of the manifestation of HIS LIFE.
If it is wisdom you would glory in, then glory not in the wisdom of Solomon, or some other great man, for
If it is righteousness you would glory in, then
If it is sanctification you would glory,
You would glory in redemption?
