“And all of us, with unveiled faces, seeing the glory of the Lord as though reflected in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord, the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18 (NRSV)
Believers are being changed into Christ’s likeness by one degree of glory to another. As the second hand moves around the face of the clock, so too the Spirit continues to move slowly, but assuredly, upon our inner being changing us to glorify Christ more and more.
And when we behold Christ as we read the Scriptures, as we gaze upon His life, we too will be conformed to reflect more of Him in our life. Gradually Christ’s divine glory overtakes us and we find ourselves changed by it.
Beholding Christ in the Word and surrendering to the work of the Spirit upon our hearts are the crucial elements that alone transform us to become like our Saviour. His glory shines upon us and fill us until it shines out from us again. We are becoming a glorious and splendid work that will draw others to the wonderment of our Heavenly Father.
Do we want to be like Christ? Is this the deepest yearning of our heart? Then if we truly long for this and place ourselves humbly before Him and linger upon the life of Christ in the Scriptures, the Spirit will joyfully and faithfully change us. Let Christ’s ways become ours and His consuming love for people be our passion also.
There is no other way. Only by beholding Jesus and gazing lovingly upon His life, can we become like Him too.
