Great Evil Translated To Greater Glory
The greater the amount of evil defeated in saving one’s eternal life, the greater the glory attributed to God.
I don’t mean that one sin is “worse” than another. I don’t mean that a certain grace imparted is greater than another, nor that it is harder for God to defeat a “greater amount” of evil in any given person’s life. There is no sin that can’t be forgiven, and no evil that He can’t defeat.
What I mean is that, from the perspective of a person who was granted the miracle of saving grace later in life, the odds of my seeing and accepting that grace seemed slim, at best. The awe and wonder I have in light of that are immense!
I also mean that the large amount and the “seriousness” (as judged by Earthly standards) of the selfish evil accumulated in my own life that was defeated by Grace, is a metaphor for the “increasing amount” of wickedness, and evil, and selfishness I see accumulating in the world today. The longer He lets it build up – the worse it gets – the more awe and wonder there will be when He comes in all His Glory! That metaphor concludes with all the evil of the world being defeated in due time, and on that day, great will be the glory of God! On that day, all people will “bow their knee” to Christ. (Sadly to say, for a great many souls who don’t know Him, and consequently whom He doesn’t know, that will be their last desperate act before their everlasting death.) For Eternal Life, and for the Great Glory of God, I continue to present my case – His case for evil to be translated to glory, and I continue to pray toward that end.
