“Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 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 3:16-18
When we turn to the Lord the veil between us is taken away. A right relationship with the God of the universe is restored. Made right. With that restoration comes freedom. With unveiled faces we can BEHOLD the GLORY of God. And in that beholding, WE are TRANSFORMED into that same glorious image.
This promise from God’s Word that He is in the process of TRANSFORMING us as we GAZE upon Him gives me such HOPE.
For so many years I didn’t think change or joy or hope was possible.
You, my friend, are being TRANSFORMED into the image of God. Do you believe it? Do you trust the power of His Word?
It is when we BEHOLD Him and GAZE UPON His glory that we are transformed. So how can we behold God today? Where do you see His glory? Let us fix our eyes upon Him and who He is instead of fixing our eyes and thoughts on the world and our circumstances. This world we live in is broken, if we let our minds dwell on the negative and evil happening around us we become filled with anxiety, worry, stress, and fear.
But, when we gaze at Jesus, He transforms us.
How do we gaze upon Jesus? How do we fix our eyes on Him? We know Him more through His Word and prayer. We see His glory all around us…get outside! We meditate upon Him by choosing to meditate on and memorize Scripture. Turn on praise music. Don’t neglect meeting together with other believers.
Which will you choose?
