John 5:31-47


It is through the way of the Cross that Jesus gives glory to God, receives glory from God, and makes God’s glory known to us. The glory of the Resurrection can never be separated from the glory of the Cross. Thus, the glory of God stands in contrast to the glory of people. People seek glory by moving upward; God reveals his glory by moving downward. If we genuinely want to see the glory of God, a glory and praise that give life, then we need to move downward with Jesus.
