TO THE BIBLE: Colossians 1:27 NIV
“To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ ushered us into a greater glory. You were brought into this life of glory when you were born again. This is different from the glory that Adam and Eve experienced in the Garden of Eden.
Being born again, you’re not born after the first Adam but after the second and last Adam, Jesus Christ. The Scriptures tell us that the first man, Adam, became a living soul. But the last Adam—Christ—is a life-giving Spirit (1 Corinthians 15:45). That means you’ve been brought into a life of beauty, excellence, success and prosperity.
You’ve been glorified already. Jesus said in John 17:22: “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one.” Notice He didn’t say, “I’ve restored them back to the glory which Adam had.” All men became separated from the glory of God because of sin, but Jesus, through His death, nailed sin to the cross and by His resurrection, ushered us into a new life of glory. He glorified you with Himself. Now, you can boldly say, “I’m excellent and full of glory,” Hallelujah!
Now, when people say to you, “How are you today?” it’s not enough to say, “I’m fine, thank you!” because you’re actually more than “fine!” Rather, say, “I’m excellent and full of glory!” Let that be your response from now on, because, indeed, you’re excellent and full of God’s glory! Hallelujah!

Dear Father, I thank you for your glory that’s in my spirit. This glory is manifested in all areas of my life, causing me to display wisdom and excellence in all that I do, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
