2 Thessalonians 1:12 KJV
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.
When the apostle prayed for these believers, he prayed that the name of Christ would be glorified in them. He wanted their lives to be a testimony to the majesty, love, grace and power of the Lord. He wanted them to be lighthouses together, guiding the lost to Christ.
He also prayed they their own names would be glorified in Christ. He wanted them to be more than greasy tools that God used; he wanted to see them uplifted, changed, sanctified and molded into the glorious image of Jesus.
The Christian life is about serving the Lord and others but it is about more than that. The Christian life is about being joint heirs with Christ, about being the sons of God. The Christian life is about putting off the deeds of the flesh and putting on the new man which is after Christ.
Salvation is more than being forgiven of sin; it is about being made priests and kings.
