The general title for this series of talks is ‘Prepared for Glory’. It is taken from an expression in Romans where Paul describes all true believers in the Lord Jesus as ‘vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory’ (9:23).
As a thought model Dr Gooding uses the ancient Hebrew tabernacle and its God given series of sacrifices and offerings, which point to the Lord Jesus. As we contemplate his beauty we begin to admire him, and from admiring him we worship him, and from worshipping him we aspire to be like him and to imitate him. In that way, we are being prepared for glory.
