The Glory of God

 The Glory of God

Simeon took him [Jesus] in his arms and praised God, saying, “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel (Luke 2:28-32; NIV).

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12; NIV).

The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being (Hebrews 1:3; NIV).

Jesus is
The light of the world,
The Son of God,
And the radiance
Of his glory.

He is the exact representation
Of God’s being,
A light for revelation
To the Gentiles,
And the glory of his people,
