Yet I am always with you;
you hold me by my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
This psalmist describes being taken into glory as something happening at death, when he will join God in heaven. Maybe I am reading too much into this, but would these verses be written differently after Christ had been sent to save us? Did Jesus share the Holy Spirit with us as a way to share God’s glory, and allow us to share that glory with others? We share in God’s glory here during this life, when we have the Holy Spirit living in us.
Holy One, I am studying your glory through your Word. Help me to understand. Can this help me today; can one person see your glory through me, at work today? I pray I may be a positive sign, and never a negative one. Amen
