Redemption from Sin Restores Our Glory – A Quote by Paul Manwaring in “What on Earth is Glory”

“If sin is falling short of glory, then restoration from sin is necessarily restoration to glory. Restoration to glory is the true purpose of our redemption through Christ. In fact, glory is the purpose for which we were created (see Isa. 43:7). From all eternity, God made us to behold and reflect His glory. Our falling short of that glory did not destroy that purpose, even though that fall brought death to us. It only meant that accomplishing that purpose would require restoration through resurrection. It meant that salvation would not merely be a matter of commuting a criminal sentence, but of taking the criminal and making him a man—the man he never was and yet was always meant to be.”
