He's Changing Us Into His Image

2 Corinthians 3:16-18-

16but whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18But 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 from the Lord, the Spirit.
     Since, we, as believers, have "turned to the Lord" by faith in His Word, the veil has been taken away, so that we can (v.18) behold the glory of the Lord, and we can be sure that we are being transformed into His image progressively.
     Where does this "beholding" go on? In our minds? No, but in our spirits where deep calls unto deep. This is the place where He connects with us, and where we, in turn, connect with Him. It is a sacred and a secret place. We are in the "King's chamber" alone with Him, as He, by His Spirit, is changing us, as we gaze upon Him. We are One with Him in this place. It's a beautiful place filled with His peace, joy and love; it is eternity and life everlasting because it is where He alone has the pre-eminence. We see the true image of God, reflected in the face of Jesus, His Son, with no veils to mar that image.
     Before we turned to Christ, we didn't see Him in truth, but our sins, and unredeemed minds, marred His image. I am not saying that we see Him perfectly in our beings, because those things in our souls still mar that image, and as those things are removed, as we willingly allow Him to sanctify us, the vision that our spirit now sees as perfect, will then be aware to us in our souls. Wow!
     It is just a miracle how God provides for every little thing in us, as it's His working alone which transforms us. All He wants from us is our willingness, indicated by our yielded ness. As we offer ourselves as living sacrifices, by yielding to His Will for our lives daily, He does the rest. Rest assured.
