In my daily Bible reading, my habit is to read one chapter from the Old and one from the New Testament. Right now I’m currently in Job and I just finished 2 Peter. I was struck to come across very similar themes and words in reference to God in the two chapters I read. One was from the Old Testament in Job, and the other from the New Testament in 2 Peter. Those verses were both specifically referring to God’s “excellent glory and majesty”.
The word combinations used in the verses are so powerful and descriptive:
Excellent in power
Read and see how similar the wording is in both places:
…With God is awesome majesty.
As for the Almighty, we cannot find Him;
He is excellent in power,
In judgment and abundant justice;
He does not oppress.
Therefore men fear Him;
He shows no partiality to any who are wise of heart.”
(2 Peter 1:17)
For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
It nearly gives me goosebumps to think of how majestic, awesome, powerful, and excellent is Christ our Savior!
