How is Jesus glorified by the Spirit?

water_15078acThis evening’s Bible study at Trinity Presbyterian Church focuses on John 16:5-16. In verse 14 Jesus writes, “He [the Holy Spirit] will bring glory to me by taking from wht is mine and making it known to you.” My concluding thought on the passage:

How is Jesus glorified in this? He is glorified by the Spirit drawing to Christ those for whom he died. He is glorified by the Spirit working in them to shape their lives to be like his. He is glorified as, in the last day, he is joined to his bride, the church, beautifully dressed for her husband and Lord. What the Spirit is doing in you this week through the Word and sacraments is bringing glory to Jesus!
