Sermon Illustrations on Glory

Most powerful Holy Spirit,     

come down         

upon us 

and subdue us. 

From heaven,     

where the ordinary        

is made glorious,     

and glory seems 

but ordinary, 

bathe us     

with the brilliance     

of Your light 

like dew.

Invocation of the Holy Spirit, in The Northumbria Community (2018-03-08). Celtic Daily Prayer (Kindle Locations 38-45). HarperCollins Publishers. Kindle Edition.


Glory be to You, O Father everlasting, who did send your only-begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. Glory be to you, O Lord Jesus Christ, who has brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Glory be to you, O Holy Spirit, who does enliven us together with Christ, and does shed abroad His love in our hearts. Blessed be to you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God; and blessed be your glorious name for ever. Amen

Enlighten us, O God, by your Spirit, in the understanding of your Word, and grant us the grace to receive it in true fear and humility, that we may learn to put our trust in you, to fear and honor you, by glorifying your Holy Name in all our life, and to yield you the love and obedience which faithful servants owe to their master and children to their fathers, seeing it has led you to call us to the number of your servants and children.

John Calvin

Glory be to you, O Holy Spirit, who does enliven us together with Christ, and does shed abroad His love in our hearts. Blessed be to you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God; and blessed be your glorious name for ever. Amen
