Crowned With Glory And Honour by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Crowned With Glory And Honour by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

To whom God would make known what
is the riches of the glory of this mystery
among the Gentiles; which is Christ in
you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27).

M
any think that Christianity restored us back
to what Adam and Eve used to be or had
in the Garden of Eden, but that’s not true.
What we have is a far greater glory (2 Corinthians 3:10).
Being born again, you’re not born after the first Adam
but after the second and last Adam, Jesus Christ. The
Scripture says, “…The first man, Adam, became a living
person. But the last Adam—that is, Christ—is a life-giving
Spirit” (1 Corinthians 15:45 NLT).

I want you to carefully note the tenses in Romans
8:30 as we read this time from the Weymouth New
Testament: “…and those whom He has pre-destined He
also has called; and those whom He has called He has
also declared free from guilt; and those whom He has
declared free from guilt He has also crowned with glory
.” Here, we identify vital realities concerning the new
creation, which are the results of Christ’s redemptive
work. One of them is that you’ve been crowned with
glory. That means you’ve been brought into a life of
beauty and excellence.

Furthermore, in 1 Peter 5:10, we read that God
has called you to His own eternal glory in Christ Jesus.
The same truth is highlighted in 2 Peter 1:3: “According
as his divine power hath given unto us all things that
pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge
of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.” You’ve been glorified, not with any lesser glory, but with the
same glory that is on Jesus. He said in John 17:22: “And
the glory which thou gavest me I have given them….”

“But doesn’t the Bible say in Romans 3:23 that
all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God?”
someone may ask. That was before Jesus came. All men
became separated from the glory of God because of
sin, but Jesus, through His death, nailed sin to the Cross
and brought us into glory; not the glory that Adam
and Eve had, but His own glory. He glorified you with
Himself.

Referring to Jesus, Hebrews 2:9 tells us that God
crowned Him with glory and honour. Then in 1 John
4:17, we read that as He is, so are we in this world.
Blessed be God! You’re crowned with glory and honour
just like Jesus. Your life isn’t for reproach; it’s for glory,
beauty, excellence and honour. Hallelujah!

CONFESSION
My life is excellent and full of glory; I’m crowned
with righteousness and honour, and the pleasure of
the Lord is prospering through me. Christ is exalted
in me today and evermore; my life is for His glory.
Hallelujah!
