Beholding Christ


But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. —2 Corinthians 3:18

It is crucial for us to spend time in God’s Word so we can connect with the person of Christ. 

Reading about the impact of Jesus’ unconditional love for us compels us to love without demand. 

His mercy and His free distribution of grace to the most undeserving make us ashamed of our tendency to withhold forgiveness and seek revenge.

We find ourselves becoming a more thankful person when we realize that, despite our shameful fallenness, the Lord has clothed us in the beauty of His perfect righteousness. 

His amazing ways and unsurpassed wisdom motivate and transform us. 

It is hard to be content with our lives as it is when in His presence We are drawn to become more like Him.

The apostle Paul calls us to the joy of beholding Christ. 

As we do so, we are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory.

Stay close to God and we will never be the same again.
