2 Corinthians 3:18 “So all of us who had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord – Who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His glorious image.”
After Moses came from being in God’s Presence, he had to cover his face with a veil for 2 reasons: the people were afraid because his face shone, and so they won’t see the glory fade as time passed. But the bible says that those of us who are in Christ do not have that veil because God’s glory is meant to be seen through us. We can see it in other believers, and other people will see it reflected on us.
It also says that it is the Lord Who changes us into His image. The word “change” is literally translated from the Greek to “transformed” or “metamorphosis”. It means that the change isn’t superficial. It’s a change from the inside, a change in the DNA, like a caterpillar to a butterfly. Some scientists have already proven that they can tell through DNA when a person is a believer of Christ because of a DNA change!We are literally changed into another “creature”, an X-man not from the movies!
That means we could do things we couldn’t do before – reflect God to the world! That means we can love the unlovable, forgive the unforgivable, be an agent of healing, overcome challenges, reflect His compassion and kindness, know His wisdom for situations, be a blessing wherever we are! Being changed is God’s work, we just flow with Him. So however you may see yourself now, be encouraged. He is changing you! One day you will look at yourself and see what an awesome creation you have become – the image of God’s glory!
Encourage others. Pass on and share.
