By Beholding         

January 18, 2018

"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. I don't think God is talking about a momentary glance. Beholding Jesus isn't a quick fix. We can't spend five minutes with our Maker in the morning, then focus on ourselves and our problems for the rest of the day, and expect to be transformed into His image. It must be a constant beholding.

My friend Mollie says, "What we feed, grows; and what we starve, dies." If we want to grow into the image of Jesus, if we want to become like Him in character, we must look to Him! We must spend much time studying His Word and meditating on His goodness. By beholding, we truly become changed.
