Reflection of His Glory

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 Corinthians 3:18)
You are a reflection of His glory.
The Greek verb “metamorphoō” is the same word used for Jesus’ being transfigured on the mountain. In the same way, it was also used for our transfiguration through the renewing of our minds. Christ’s glory is the source of the transformation that takes place inside us. The more we gaze and behold His beauty, the more transformed we become by His glory!
Because of this holy process, we are radiant, regal and righteous in God’s eyes.
We don’t have to fear failure or feel condemned by our performance. Since the love of God never fails, we can trust and depend on His sufficiency, not ours. When we gaze His way, the radiance He sees within us increases, because we are mirroring His beautiful glory right back at Him!
God is able to simultaneously view you in the present and future. He sees you for who you are now and who you will be as He continues to transform you, loving you as if you were already perfect!
Keeping this in mind can help us overcome the fear of failure and the habit of being self critical.
As you go through today, try to view yourself the way God sees you. Radiant, lovely, righteous, and regal! He has removed the veil from your eyes so that you could become a mirror of His beauty and glory… a complete reflection of His kingdom!
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
