"For the Lord to whom they could turn is the Spirit of the new agreement, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, men's souls are set free. But all of us have no veils on our faces, but reflect like mirrors the glory of the Lord. We are transfigured by the Spirit of the Lord in ever-increasing splendor into his own image." 2 Corinthians 3
"We want our transitory life to be absorbed into the life that is eternal." 2 Corinthians 5
Today, may we turn and truly look into the Face of the One who brought the "new agreement," the agreement that was made between God and Himself by the sacrifice of Jesus. We are set free. Let's once and for all time remove the veil of indifference and doubt, and begin, by His Holy Spirit, not to just reflect His glory, but to be transfigured into His very image, from glory to glory.
Our life is fleeting before us as the days pass by, one after the other, ceaselessly, ceaselessly. And yet we lift our eyes up to the life that is eternal; absorbed until we cease to be ourselves at all.
Only you, Jesus.
