“Glow of God”
What is the “glow of God”?
The glow of God is the strong, bright light of Christ which shines forth from our face due to the heart that is greatly fired up by the Holy Spirit.
Stephen of Acts is a case in point. The Book of Acts describes Stephen as a man “full of faith and of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 6:5). The Bible continues to say that
Stephen, full of grace and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.(v8)
When he was persecuted for his fiery ministry and brought before the council, Acts 6:15 records,
and gazing at him, all who sat in the council saw that his (Stephen) face was like the face of an angel.
Stephen has the glow of God on his face because his heart was set ablazed by the Holy Spirit.
You can say synonymously that the glow of God is the “glory of God” emanating from your countenance or your appearance.
It does not shine on its own. But it is an outflow from a heart that is aglow and aflame with the fire of the Holy Spirit.
It is a glow given only to Christians – Christians who have the light of Christ within their heart.
It is a glow that every one (Christians and non-Christians alike) can see obviously.
It is also a glow that can disappear if we as Christians are not careful to master over a few things in our lives.
