The Word made flesh: infinitely glorious!


“Worthy are you, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they existed and were created.”
(Revelation 4:11)

Horatio Bonar, in a message “Glory to the Glorious One”

As having in Himself all the perfections of the Creator and of the creature—as very God and very man—the Word made flesh—He is ‘worthy to receive glory’. Godhead and manhood, united in one wondrous person, make Him infinitely glorious. Through Him new glory comes to the whole Godhead. He is the Revealer of the Father. His glory thus overflows, and fills both heaven and earth—more, the whole universe!
