““Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
For in these I delight,” says the Lord.” Jeremiah 9:23-24……….
Who are the wise, mighty and rich people in the eyes of the Lord? Not those who have accumulated and are hoarding worldly wealth, pleasures, and treasures, but those who know the Lord. And in what do the truly wise, mighty, and rich people in God’s eyes glory? In earthly successes, climbing corporate ladders, being millionaires, having the world’s praise, etc.? No! They glory IN THE LORD and in KNOWING HIM! The only way to know the Lord personally in an intimate relationship with Him is through repentance, faith in, and a life devoted to Christ as Lord. And the Lord makes clear KNOWING HIM is equated with a life of obedience to Him (1 John 2:3-6)! The Lord DELIGHTS IN HIS CHILDREN who believe in, know, love, follow, and obey Him! Oh, how blessed it is to glory in Christ and in a forever relationship with Him in which we live to love, honor, revere, obey, and glorify Christ forevermore! Blessed, blessed, so blessed we are when we know the Lord! Glory, glory, glory to the Lord everlastingly, yes!
