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!

      I received this from another site…

      “So in the same measure you give the words [Word of God] and trust Christ will be measured back to you”

      Daryl, understand that Jesus Christ loves you and gave His life so that you can keep yours. This love and affection He has for you, He received from His father to give to you. Your purpose, as well as all of ours is to live our lives in the connection of gratitude to that love.

      Life is fulfilled when the object of our gratitude and love is directed higher than ourselves. People are truly fulfilled whenever they give themselves to something greater than themselves…in our case, that greater is Jesus Christ.

    Wel,I will like to say thank you for the word.if we will receive this riches,we need to receive Christ first. Even in the text, Paul said, through Christ Jesus. And john 14:6,also make it clear. So,all we need to do,is to live faithfully for God. God bless you and increase you more in His grace.
