Notice the phrase, “his riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). Consider the depth of what Paul is saying. . .

God possess riches of glory. It is not just that he is glorious, not merely that he’s important. His glory is rich. It is bountiful and desirable and precious. It’s real. It is the legitimate end and basis to all of God’s acts. He does all that he does, including supply what we need, because of his glory, for the sake of his glory.

And more specifically, his glory is in Christ Jesus. Don’t think it is generic or plain. Don’t think of glory as some abstract blob. It is precise and sharp and direct. God’s supply will come through his Son. The riches of the glory of God are seen most vividly in the death and resurrection of Jesus for sinners. And the riches of the glory of God are experienced most fully when Jesus dwells in our hearts through faith (Ephesians 3:16–17).

So as we go forth, as we hope in God for our daily bread, for our every need, let us know that his supply comes to us according to these riches. According to the riches of his glory in the Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior and all.

    I was listening to this verse being spoken and then it struck me like lighting! I realized more of what this meant and it was just like you said. Not just some abstraction that is foggy but the cross is the clearest picture of the apex of Gods glory. And behind that glory is grace. And that grace by Christ Jesus. I want to know more and more the grace of God through faith!
