‘Glory’ is certainly not the word a first-century Jew would have ever used to describe a cross. Crucifixion was the most brutal, shameful means of execution devised by man. And yet as Jesus approached “the hour” of his arrest, crucifixion and resurrection, he prayed for the Father to glorify his name. And He did.
The cross is how Jesus judged the world.
The cross is how Satan loses his power of accusation.
The cross is how Jesus draws us to himself.
The cross is glorious!
