What does being glorified mean to you? I confess for me, it was always more to have a glorified body (no aches, pains, etc.). But last week, while conducting the Christ our Passover Seder presentations, I began to think a lot about the leaven. One day IN GLORY, I will be free from the leaven of sin.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
Can you imagine being completely free from sin? Please imagine with me, no sin. Yes, those who are in Messiah Yeshua have no condemnation (we are justified), but oh to be one day glorified—My Lord Himself will cleanse “my house” from all leavening materials. Oh Hallelujah—GLORY HALLELUJAH. At this moment, His resurrection means we will one day be resurrected into a body free from all sin—I’m sorry, I know I’m repeating the same thing over and over again, but I can’t find any apt words to convey the freedom and joy.
Question: When you think about being free from sin, are you thinking more about getting rid of the leaven from the world and others around you? Or are you really thinking about the freedom from your own sin? A dear friend of ours would say, “There I go meddling again.”
