Reflected Glory


2 Corinthians 3:18
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Our message in church Sunday morning was based on 2 Corinthians 3. Verse 18, the last verse in the chapter is the one my thoughts lingered on.

The thought that like a reflection in glass or a mirror, I can reflect the glory of the Lord - is the result of Christ’s Spirit working in me to make me more like Him.

That it is possible for me to reflect Jesus Christ because He dwells inside of me is a reality almost beyond my comprehension, yet doesn’t make it any less true. But it humbles me.

It should humble every believer and at the same time, it is an indescribable honor and an immeasurable challenge and responsibility. Thankfully, it is His work in us that accomplishes our transformation to make us more like Him, and that work will be accomplished more readily if we are willing vessels.

This is the challenge: 
If we are willing vessels, day by day we will reflect the glory of our Lord.
