Glory

I am currently reading through several books right now.  One that I am highly enjoying is “Death By Love” by Mark Driscoll.  In the chapter where he talks about Chris being our example, he spends a portion of it talking about God’s glory.  That led to me meditating and worshipping God for His glorious character.  Out of that came this poem.

Lord God, Heavenly Father, you are glorious.
The whole Earth is filled with your glory,
But man’s eyes have been darkened to the ruth
And forsaken your glory for worthless idols.

Jesus Christ is the radiance of God’s glory.
He is the image of the invisible God.
His mission is to give sight to the blind
And set the captives free
So that many may live for God’s glory.

Thank you for the cross
Where your glory is on full display.
At the cross justice and mercy kiss,
Jesus paid the price of God’s justice
By receiving the wrath we justly deserved
So that we can be covered in grace and mercy.
