Transformed into His Image

The sight of Christ makes us like Him. The Holy Spirit enlightens the mind, directs the eye to Jesus, points out the excellences of Jesus, and keeps the eye fixed on Jesus! As we behold Him, we are changed into the likeness of His holiness, love, truthfulness, mercy, justice, and compassion. We become spiritual and Christ-like. Our humility deepens, our patience strengthens, and our benevolence becomes more pure and expansive.

Man by nature, is altogether unlike God. Man by grace, is being gradually conformed to the image of God. Man in glory, will exactly resemble God. We shall then be like Him for we shall see Him as He is!

O Holy Spirit, change me from glory to glory, until I am all glorious within and without, for Jesus' sake!

[James Smith]

2 Corinthians 3:18 ... But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. ❤
