~Jesus, the Christ
And now? After the agonizing, brutal Friday and the dead-silent Saturday? Glory! Jesus rightfully entered into His glory.
The Emmaus-bound travelers tried to make sense of the recent events. They tried to explain it. But they couldn’t see it. The Stranger gently reminded them that it could happen no other way. The Christ had to suffer. But then . . .! Then He would reign in glory!
I find no words worthy of the occasion . . . worthy of the Christ of God. Praise pales in comparison to the reality of Him. Words flail . . . fleet . . . fail. My voice falls silent, but how my spirit shouts; “G l o r i a !”
So, when you have nothing to give, give glory. Today, this Easter that shines bright with His majesty, I simply give Him glory.
"Ascribe to the LORD, O families of nations,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength,
ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name.
Bring an offering and come before him;
worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness."
All-Glorious, Risen One; Great are You, Lord, and worthy of glory! We ascribe to You the glory due Your Marvelous Name. From everlasting to everlasting You are God and worthy of all praise, honor, and dominion.
