“…seeing the glory of the Lord as though reflected in a mirror…” 2 Corinthians 3:18 NRSV
When we look upon Christ and His glory, in a very real way we are seeing ourselves. What we see in Him is God’s desire for each and every one of us without exception (Romans 8:29). As we behold Him in contemplation, anything contrary to Him is exposed so it can be dispensed with. Anything that is in harmony with Him is accentuated and strengthened. The goal of this never-ending process is to shape our lives into what we see in Jesus Christ.
