                                        More on Glory.


 "That The Name of our Lord Jesus Christ May be Glorified in you and Ye in Him according to The Grace of our God and The Lord Jesus Christ." [1 Thessalonians 1:12.]

Have you ever looked at the endless expanse of the heavens through a Powerful telescope? If you haven't, it is an experience that leaves you, only to marvel.

The Bible says  "The Heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows forth His handiwork; day unto day uttereth speech, night unto night sheweth knowledge"  [Psalm 19:1.]

What goodness comes with having "The fear of The Lord". This fear is not a "running scared" of The Lord but a reverential trust in Him; who doesn't long to experience "a fountain of Life", and if there is a reverential fear and acknowledgement of the Lord, then you make room for Him and room for Him means you are about to experience a "Fountain of LIFE" .

Jesus said to the woman at the well (John 4.)  "But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give Him shall be in him a well of water springing up into...
