Behold His Son, Become More Like Him

"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)

The more that we know Jesus, the more that we understand and rest in His thoughts, His feelings, and see who we are in Him, then the more we are like Him:

God's plan for everyone of us is to be more and more like Jesus His Son:

"For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren." (Romans 8: 29)

We are called to grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord (2 Peter 3: 18).

God sent His Son, who brought with Himself grace and truth  (John 1: 17), and grace and truth are two sides of the same blessed coin, joined together in Christ.

As we see more of Jesus in the Word, as we know Him more, we are transformed from glory to glory, for Christ in  us is the hope, the certain expectation of God, that is Christ (Colossians 1: 29).

"1Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure." (1 John 3: 1)

Behold Jesus, know Him more, and this you become more like Him.
