John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Consider this: What a man is is always more important to God than what he does. Remember that if a man had the ability to stand up and create pine trees and lakes and hills and was not a good man, through and through a good man, he would still be of no value to God! And let us remember too, that if a man is a good man, through and through a good man, and has no power to perform a miracle or any great work, he would still be one of God’s most valued treasures. God would write his name on His own hands for it is goodness that God is looking for.
So it was the very person and character of Jesus that was glorious. It was not only what He did-but what He was. What He did was secondary. What He was in His person was primary. Brethren, there can be no argument about Jesus Christ’s glory-His glory lay in the fact that He was perfect love in a loveless world; that He was perfect purity in an impure world; that He was perfect meekness in a harsh and quarrelsome world.There was no end to His glory. He was perfect humility in a world where every man was seeking his own benefit. He was boundless and fathomless mercy in a hard and cruel world. He was completely selfless goodness in a world full of selfishness.
There’s a light upon the mountains,
And the day is at the spring,
When our eyes shall see the beauty
And the glory of the King
