“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” -2 Corinthians 3:18
Sometimes we find ourselves mimicking and copying people who are empty, lost, and wanting. They need you to, instead, model for them what it means to be a person filled with peace, life, and goodness.
People need someone like you to model what it means to be truly alive. They do not need more followers to enable their inner death. They need you to be like Jesus. They need people that put their anger to death, that are honest, that turn their cheeks when slapped, that desire peace, that love their enemies, that overcome evil with good, who pray, who seek God’s face, who desire him, who love what is good, who hate what is evil. They need people like that. They need people like you.
Don’t just look like everyone around you. Don’t be concerned so much with what the world thinks about you. Stop trying to look, in your outward appearance, like everyone else. They don’t need another lemming. Be transformed by Jesus.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, how glorious it is to know that you are transforming me from a creature of this world into a child of the kingdom. With an “unveiled face,” I can be a beautiful witness of your love to all I meet. Amen.
REFLECTION: Since walking closer with the Lord, how have you been transformed from your old self?
