Title: God’s Ever-Increasing Glory

“Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—”
– Hebrews 2:14

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate[a] the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
-2 Corinthians 3:17-18

 

To receive God’s Ever-Increasing Glory, we must desire for these things:

 

1) Ever-Escalating Revelation of God
– Isaiah’s Commission
– Isaiah 6:1-4

“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:

‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
the whole earth is full of his glory.’

At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.”

2) Ever-Evolving Plans of God
– Our God is a progressive God
– He is the author and the finisher of our faith
– God’s ultimate plan is for generations to generations
– Genesis 3:15, Matthew 1:17
– God is seeking men and women who will stand for Him

3) Ever-emerging Likeness of God
– God is in the business of transformation
– We are called by God to be like Him, Genesis 1:26-27
– Nearness is likeness

4) Ever-Extending Blessings of God
– Deuteronomy 7:9
– Rechabites, Jeremiah 35:17-18
– Abraham, Genesis 17, Galatians 3:29
– Caleb, Joshua 14:9

5) Ever-Expanding Dominion of God
– Transmission from the Ark of the Covenant to the throne
– Jeremiah 3:16-17

6) Ever-exploding Power of God
– Romans 8:11

7) Ever-Enlarging Hunger for God
– For God gives the Spirit without limit
– John 3:34
