Show Notes
“Without sound doctrine, the church falls apart, releasing a torrent of false teaching and an onslaught of immaturity.” - Dr. Dustin Benge

Hello Kitchen Table Theology Family! Today Pastor Jeff Cranston and Jen Denton are continuing their study of understanding who we are in Christ. In today’s podcast, we’re going to talk about the topic of glorification. 

[00:01 - 10:26] What is Glorification? 

  • Glorification is the theological term used to describe the final removal of sin from the lives of Christians at the end of time.
  • Biblically, glorification exists as one of three parts of the process of the Christian life: Justification, Sanctification, then comes Glorification.
  • The body of every Christian will become like Christ's post-resurrection body, fully glorified for all of eternity.
[10:27 - 17:47] What Will Our Glorified Bodies Look Like? 

  • When Christ returns he will give all believers at the same time perfect resurrection bodies like his own.
  • Jen and Pastor Jeff discuss Glorification in the New Testament. 
[17:48 - 19:48] A New Creation In Christ   

  • How the doctrine of Glorification weaves in with Salvation, Redemption, and Sanctification to reveal God’s will for Newness in Christ 

[19:49 - 22:39] Closing Segment         

  • Final thoughts and reminders from Pastor Jeff and Jen
