His Glory in Time
Transcript of His Glory in Time
"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer."
Henry David Thoreau
The World's Drum
The Father's Drum
"Jesus said to them, 'My time has not yet come, but your time is always here. The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify about it that its works are evil. You go up to the feast. I am not going up to this feast, for My time has not yet fully come.'"
"For not even His brothers believed in Him."
"Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in His name when they saw the signs that He was doing. But Jesus on His part did not entrust Himself to them, because He knew all people and needed no one to bear witness about man, for He himself knew what was in man."
"Perceiving then that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by Himself."
"'And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.' He said this to show by what kind of death He was going to die."
"It is almost as if they are being excluded from divine sovereignty—not that God suspended His providential reign in their case, but that what they did was utterly without significance as far as God is concerned. …Their alignment with ‘the world’ means they know nothing of God’s agenda. They do not listen to His word, do not recognize it when it comes, and cannot perceive the Word incarnate before them. They are divorced from God’s
, His divine appointments, and so any time will do. All appointments that ignore God’s
are in the eternal scheme of things equally insignificant."
"The one who speaks on his own authority seeks his own glory, but the one who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and in him there is no falsehood."
"I do nothing on My own authority, but speak just as the Father taught Me."
"I speak of what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have heard from your father."
"For I have not spoken on My own authority, but the Father who sent Me has Himself given Me a commandment--what to say and what to speak. And I know that His commandment is eternal life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has told Me."
"Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when He finished, one of His disciples said to Him, 'Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught His disciples.' And He said to them, 'When you pray, say: 'Father, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come.'"
"God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom and our righteousness and sanctification and redemption. Therefore, as it is written, 'Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.'"
1 Corinthians 1:28-31
"Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in Me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing."
"But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his deeds have been carried out in God."
"My drive in life comes from a fear of being mediocre. That is always pushing me. I push past one spell of it and discover myself as a special human being but then I feel I am still mediocre and uninteresting unless I do something else. Because even though I have become somebody, I still have to prove that I am somebody. My struggle has never ended and I guess it never will."
"Do not imagine that if you meet a really humble man he will be what most people call ‘humble’ nowadays: he will not be a sort of greasy, smarmy person, who is always telling you that, of course, he is a nobody. Probably all you will think about him is that he seemed a cheerful, intelligent chap who took a real interest in what you said to him. If you do dislike him it will be because you feel a little envious of anyone who seems to enjoy life so easily. He will not be thinking about humility: he will not be thinking about himself at all."
