From Glory to Glory

26 Mar

Needless to say, maturity doesn’t occur in one giant leap, but through a process: ‘But we all… are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory” (2 Corinthians 3:18). Notice it’s ‘from glory to glory,’ not ‘from garbage to glory.’ You are already holy in Christ…

Just as an oak sapling does not get oakier as it matures, neither does a new creature in Christ get holier, more forgiven, more accepted, etc… Of course, a Christian can just as surely ‘walk after the flesh’ and develop character that is completely contrary to his true nature.
