Brothers and sisters, today’s topic of Treasures for the Soul is “Look upon the Lord in glory.”
In the Book of Acts chapter 7, Stephen gazed into heaven and saw the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God. When the Lord appeared to Paul, He was brighter than the sun. Revelation says the Lamb is the light of the city. Hebrews chapter 12 says we have come to the heavenly Jerusalem. These passages help us, in a more concrete way, to behold the Lord: He is in glory, at the right hand of the Father; His light shines through New Jerusalem; at the same time, He lives in our heart, closest to us. Similarly, when we behold the Father according to Revelation chapter 4, we see the Father’s glory and brilliance. This is also following the Lord’s teaching, that we pray to our Father in heaven. It’s so precious that we all direct ourselves to Abba and the Lord as our focus when we behold and worship.
