Irenaeus: God glorified

Monday, June 28, 2021
    Feast of Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons, Teacher, Martyr, c.200
    For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
    —2 Corinthians 4:6 (NIV)
    Now this God is glorified by His Word who is His Son continually, and by the Holy Spirit who is the Wisdom of the Father of all: and the power(s) of these, (namely) of the Word and Wisdom, which are called Cherubim and Seraphim, with unceasing voices glorify God; and every created thing that is in the heavens offers glory to God the Father of all.
    ... Irenaeus (c.130-c.200), The Demonstration of the Apostolic Preaching [2nd c.], par. 10 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 4:6; Matt. 11:25-26; John 1:1; 8:31-32; Rom. 1:20; 1 Cor. 1:30
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your glory is without limit.
