The Spirit of Glory


The Son prayed to the Father: “The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.” (Jn 17:22-23)

The “glory” is the Holy Spirit. He is the one in whom we are united to the Son and to one another (Eph 4:3). He is glory because he is the eternal Spirit of love shared between the Father and the Son. The Spirit of Glory is given to us because God the Father has loved us even as he has loved the Son. The goal of all this? That the world may know God’s glory in Christ.
