You’re the express image of God’s Person and the out-shining of His glory. So, like Jesus, you’re glorified. That means you’re to live a life of glory, not a life of reproach, defeat, penury, sickness, or disease; you’ve been handpicked for the glory-life.
“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover, whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them He also glorified.” (Romans 8:29-30)
Ours is a life of glory in Christ Jesus. You’re appointed to live in divine health, strength, abundance and prosperity. You’re predestined to be conformed to the image of God’s Son. He created you to be just like Jesus.
Peace means amongst other beautiful things, power over crisis. It’s translated from the Greek word “eir é é n é é,” which is akin to the Hebrew word “shalom.” It doesn’t just refer to the peace of being safe from evil and destruction, but to that which brings rest and prosperity.
That’s the kind of life Jesus had when He walked the earth: He was full of grace and truth, and was at rest and in control, every time, every day, everywhere and in all circumstances!
