Gazing on God’s Glory 2016
Thursday 27 – Friday 28 October.
God’s glory is multifaceted and as we gaze through the lens of Scripture, just as in a kaleidoscope, more and more of his glory is revealed. From the mountain-top encounters of Moses and Elijah, to the shining brilliance of the Transfiguration; God’s glory is manifest in different ways at different times.
However, it is on gazing on the glory of God revealed in Christ through his servanthood, love, mercy and sacrifice that we find an unsurpassable revelation of glory. This ‘gazing’ is not passive and inactive nor does it turn us away from the mission God calls us to; rather it is in gazing upon Christ’s service and sacrifice that we are shaped as disciples and spurred on to mission and service in our own communities.
