In John 2:11 the Bible says that Jesus “manifested His glory”. In modern terminology we might think of a cargo ship’s manifest, which would describe the cargo as well as its origin and destination.
In biblical terms manifest means to uncover or make known. The commercial and the biblical understanding of the word “manifest” are pretty close. Jesus carried the Glory of God: the character, nature and Presence of the Lord. He manifested, or delivered, what He carried to those He came in contact with.
We too as believers carry something. We carry the Presence of the Lord as well as His Love and His Peace. As Jesus delivered what He carried to others, so should we. So deliver the goods! Freely you have received, now freely give to others!
