How lovely is your dwelling place,
    O Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
I long, yes, I faint with longing
    to enter the courts of the Lord.
With my whole being, body and soul,
    I will shout joyfully to the living God.
Even the sparrow finds a home,
    and the swallow builds her nest and raises her young
at a place near your altar,
    O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, my King and my God!
What joy for those who can live in your house,
    always singing your praises. Psalm 84:1 – 4 NLT

Seeing Ourselves

back-615755_1280

“…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.

Today, may we fully cooperate with the Lord’s transforming process as we go about our day living in the Reign.
