“All of us, with no covering on our faces, show the shining-greatness of the Lord as in a mirror. All the time we are being changed to look like Him, with more and more of His shining-greatness. This change is from the Lord Who is the Spirit”. II Cor. 3:18 NLV
God is in the process of changing us into His image. Because He is so different from us, it takes us years to recognize all that needs to change within us to make us more like Him.
Pressure brings change. That is why He allows us to go through pressure and difficult circumstances.
Seasons change; times change; nations change; music styles change; technology changes; our cultures change.
Although God never changes, He is constantly moving His Church toward perfection from “glory to glory.”
We must be led by the Holy Spirit and sense when He is moving us on to the next level from “faith to faith” and from “glory to glory.”
When we gaze intently into the Word of God, we see the reflection of Jesus Christ. The Bible mirrors Jesus, showing Him to us in His glory and splendor. Without that revelation in the mirror of His Word, we cannot fully know Him or be changed into His likeness.
Through His Word, God wants to show you what you are by nature and what you can be by grace. As you look in the Word, you become like what you look at. He wants to make you like the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Bible serves two important purposes: showing us the condition we are in and revealing who Jesus Christ really is—His transcendent glory and splendor. Both are vital to our Christian walk.
The Christian life is a life of transformation and change. Is this true in your life or are you stuck in a rut trying to get out?
Our life is a life of change in which each stage of our walk with God involves constant moving change, precept upon precept, line upon line. Active response to God’s will involves constant change. His will is progressive by nature, meaning we must constantly adapt to the changes in our lives where the will of God is leading us.
