Beholding Him


“But we all, with unveiled faces, beholding as in a mirror the Glory of the Lord, are being transformed into His image from glory to glory, by the Spirit of the Lord” (2Cor. 3:18). The verb “transformed” is used four times in the New Testament and every time this word is used, without exception, it is in the passive voice. This means that our transformation is something happening TO us, by His Power, His Love, His commitment to each of us individually and personally. For the Spirit of Jesus to be able to do this transforming work upon us, we need to spend time with Him and “Behold” Him with our spirit. Practically? For you and me? TODAY spend time with Him beholding His Glory—admiring Jesus as you read about Him and consider Him, wowing at the Father’s dealings with the human race and the amazing love and stuff that He’s done and is doing for His people, thoroughly enjoying the creative ways the Father and the Son and the Spirit do the amazing things that they do... and the deep love they have for you and all of us. Bask in that. Behold and admire. And you WILL be transformed. : ) 9:18 a.m.
