Jesus Must Be Glorified

"That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 15:6)

The second point is: Be engrossed with Jesus Christ. Honor Him. John said: "But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Spirit was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified" (John 7:39).

I ask you to note that the Spirit was given when Jesus was glorified. Now that is a principle. Remember ... He came and spread Himself out as a flood upon the people because Jesus was glorified. He established a principle, and He will never, never flood the lie of any man except the man in whom Jesus is glorified.

Therefore, if you dedicate yourself to the glory of Jesus, the Holy Spirit will become the aggressor and will seek to know you and raise you and illumine you and fill you and bless you.

To glorify Jesus is the business of the Church, and to glorify Jesus is the work of the Holy Spirit.

It is no task to the Christian to obey the commandments of God. The glory of God is the great end of his being.
