In relation to the church, the glory of God in Christ,
- is still seen and reflected by the church, 2 Cor 4:3-6
- is the glory of the new covenant, 2 Cor 3:7-11
- is shared both now, 1 Pet 4:14, and hereafter, Rom 8:18 by those who suffer with Christ
- is to be manifested by the church, as she witnesses to God, Rom 15:9, shows his deeds, Acts 4:21, practices holy living, 1 Cor 6:20, and honours Christ, Rom 16:27.
