The Glory

Eph 3:21 -  Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. 

Take a look at the word "glory".  We see that its general definition is honour, praise, and worship.  But this word means so much more.  The Greek word is "doxa" (the word which we get "doctrine" from) which Thayer's describes not only with words like splendour, brightness, magnificence and excellence but also with these words: Opinion, Judgement and View.  

Let's pop this into the verse:  Eph 3:21 - "My Opinion, My Judgement and My Views be in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end.  Amen."  Try this with other verses where the Greek work "doxa" is used.

Let nothing else be known among his people other then the magnificent opinions of God on every issue, the Splendor of His righteous judgments and the excellent views of God; and his Christ.  Amen and Amen.
