God’s Glory

God’s Glory


Exodus 24:17: The Israelites at the foot of the mountain saw an awesome sight. The awesome glory of the LORD on the mountaintop looked like a devouring fire.


What would it look like if God suddenly appeared on the street, or in your classroom, or at the front of the church? What do you think it would be?


A ball of fire?


A thick cloud or fog?


A giant face?


A bolt of lightning?


A planet?


God did appear to people long ago. Not himself, but his glory. What is his glory? It’s the aspect of God that makes him most impressive, most powerful, most beautiful in our eyes. In Israel’s day, his glory was like the verse above describes – a consuming fire on top of the mountain. That’s a fire that burns up everything in its path. It’s totally awesome and inspiring. No one can stand before it.


One day, the book of Revelation (Rev. 22:4) says we will see God’s face. No one has any idea what that will look like. But it will be an awesome moment, don’t you think?


Something to look forward to in heaven!


Prayer: Lord, I’d like to see you, but let others see you in my life. Amen.
