I Peter 5:1. The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed.

We have already arrived in Zion, the City of the Living God which is actually Heaven. We are there right now. Let's observe something really interesting Peter said in our opening text. He was a witness of the sufferings of Christ but a partaker of the glory.Before died He prayed to the father that those who would share in His glory in Heaven.

John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

John 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

Romans 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Precious one, Jesus Christ after He resurrected summarized the entire Old testament as "Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?” (Luke 24: 26). The sufferings of Christ obtained for all mankind Eternal Salvation, Eternal Redemption, Eternal Justification, Eternal Resurrection from Dead works, Righteousness, Holiness, Sanctification, Eternal Peace with God, Total Deliverance from the Power of Darkness etc.

For all these virtues,we didn't work for but we are partakers of them free of charge. That's what Peter meant when he said he was a witness of the sufferings of Christ but a partaker of the Glory. He saw Jesus brutalized, tortured and killed by wicked Princes supported by the Devil but he is a fellow participator of the Glory.So is it with every believer.We are witnesses of His suffering but partakers of His glory.We are joint heirs with Christ.We have inherited His glory.Praise God!

Everything that is in the glory is yours!Don't belittle yourself again.Stop thinking below the glory because you are a full participator of the Glory of the Lord.

Confession

I am participating in the Glory of the Lord.


I cannot finish my article without leaving an invitation of the Lord.

Prayer of Salvation

Dear Lord Jesus I believe that you died and rose on the third day for my sins.I repent now and receive you into my life to be my Lord and personal saviour.Amen

If you said this prayer,you just received Christ into your life and shall spend eternity with your father in Heaven.Find and join a bible believing church and be nourished together with the entire body of Christ.

God bless you all.
