But the permanent, perfect glory that we’re waiting for will arrive when Christ comes to His Church, to render her totally pure, to dwell in her midst, to fill her with visible, eternal glory, and to give her everlasting peace.
Jesus is the one who steps into our context of sin, death and destruction. He’s the one who confirms God’s grace to his people, who rebuilds what was lost, and who once again secures God’s blessing and presence for his people.
