Devotion – II Thessalonians 1

S – “…so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified by you, and you by him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”  2 Thessalonians 1:12 CSB

O –

  • Glorify – ĕndŏxŏs, in glory, i.e. splendid, (fig.) noble:— glorious, gorgeous [-ly], honourable
  • In the Bible the name stands for the person named, his character, conduct, reputation, and everything else about him. In praying thus, Paul was asking that God would fully glorify Jesus Christ in these saints

A – How can I live today that makes the name, character, conduct and reputation of Christ splendidly honorable today?  I cannot add more to His volume of this but I can reflect it for others to see.  If I do that, God will reciprocate by adding more of Him in me.

R – Lord, help me to do this today.
