April 17 – 2 Cor.
4:6-7; “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined
in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the
face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the
excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”
It’s word study
time! The key word today is “glory”. In the Greek it means, honor, praise or
worship. Man’s arrogance is what the
apostle John addressed to the believers in his latter epistles. The theme of first John is the fellowship of
Christ and a warning to watch out for the Gnostics. Well Gnosticism is now wrapped in a pretty
new package called Mormonism.
D&C 93:36; “The
glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth.”
