Glorification: What Does It Mean?
Paul describes a single group of specific people: specifically those "who love God" and are "called according to his purpose." And these people, Paul tells us, who will one day be "glorified."That last, glorious word is the subject of this morning: Glorified! But what does this word -- last in the ordo salutis -- really mean for us?First, we discover from God's Word, glorification is not ultimately about us, but Jesus. Second, however, we also come to realize that, like so many ways that God exalts himself, glorification benefits us. And finally, we are reminded that glorification is promised, and we are kept, by the power of God.
