“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.” 2 Cor 3:18

When do you find yourself quoting this verse? When in a difficult situation? What does it mean “from glory to glory”? Share with us what this Scripture speaks to you. I look forward to reading your response.

One thought on “Week 3: A Scripture A Day — 2 Cor 3:18

  1. We are changed as the veil is removed from our eyes. The Greek word for “open” is anakalupto and the tense used here doesn’t speak of a one time unveiling but to a veil permanently removed from our eyes. We have to be willing to take an HONEST look in the mirror and acknowledge what we are and what needs CHANGED. Many are willing to look at those around them instead of themselves but this doesn’t result in change for themselves!
    With honest recognition, the Lord then corrects and transforms us, preparing us for the next glorious phase of our life. If we deny the truth concerning the needed change in our lives then we remain stuck for a longer time. Self deception is costly. We need to be willing to set aside our pride and even though it may hurt a little, the pain doesn’t compare to the glorious transformation that results as we lift the veil. May we all be willing to look at where we are with an open, honest heart and begin to make the changes we can make while allowing God to change our hearts. This will result in making our present state glorious and the Holy Spirit will begin to lead us into the next place of glory — we are transformed from glory to glory!

    Another point is that God does use every situation in our lives — the good, the bad and the ugly — to transform us into the image of Christ! Recognize His presence in every situation we find ourselves and cooperate with the Holy Spirit as He reveals to us what needs to change.
