“And we all, with unveiled faces reflecting the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, which is from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
(2 Corinthians 3:18)
Notice Paul doesn’t say the Spirit is changing us from sinners to glory – because he knew, if we are in Christ, we are already glorious.
Glory means ‘a beauty and majesty distinctive to God.’
When we accept Christ God clothes us with His very own glory – His beauty and majesty!
We have the beauty and majesty of God!
And the more we gaze on Him, the more we reflect Him and become more and more glorious – or as some translations put it: with ever-increasing glory.
The Spirit changes us into His image with ever-increasing glory; with ever-increasing beauty and majesty!
We start glorious, and become ever-more glorious the more we gaze on Him.
Hebrews says: ‘By one sacrifice He has made perfect forever those who have been made holy.’
We are already perfect in Christ, but we become more and more perfect! More and more glorious! More and more of the beauty and majesty of God!
Now doesn’t that make you feel good?
Like a child of The King of Kings ?
‘Look at the flowers, if that is how God clothes the grass of the field, how much more will he clothe you?’
With His glory, His beauty and majesty, ever-increasing … from glory to glory!
