No Glory Like His Glory

The next day after I discovered the truth of the Queensland flag and the glory of the Crown Jewels and the prominence of the Cross on these emblems, I woke-up in the morning and glanced over at the Queensland flag standing on my desk.

During the morning I got up and went to the piano and sang to the Lord. I began to weep and weep before Him.

As wonderful as the Crown Jewels are; as fabulous as is the old glory of the United States of America; as honourable as is the seal of the President of the United States of America; as excellent as is the State of Queensland, Australia - there is no glory like His glory; no honour like the honour of the Lord!

And only Jesus has abolished death:

"They do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible" (I Corinthians 9:25).

In Christ not only is there glory and honour, but in Him immortality is found.

"What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

Notice it is ok, said Paul, to seek glory:

"To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life" (Romans 2:7).

But the eternal glory and honour which includes immortality is only found in Jesus Christ.

"The kings shut their mouths at him".
