The Glory of God

Sunday Warm up with Tom

May 15 John 13:31-35

The Son of Man is glorified and, in Him, God is glorified. Jesus offers us a kind of circular (and maybe a bit confusing) teaching about God being glorified. Maybe the point is for us to ask, what is the glory of God? And the answer likely lies in the second half of this Gospel reading. It is simply “you are my disciples if you have love for one another.” The glory that Jesus’ offers is the divine love revealed on the cross. The glory of God is pure and unconditional love. What brings glory to God is when His disciples love in this same way.
