主的荣光 [Glory of the Lord]

书卷:哥林多后书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多后书3章18节:“我们众人既然敞着脸得以看见主的荣光,好像从镜子里返照,就变成主的形状,荣上加荣,如同从主的灵变成的。”

今日默想:我们乃是一面镜子,镜子的功用就是返照。我们的心若转向主,注意主,别人就在我们身上看见主;我们的心若向着自己,别人就在我们身上看见我们的“己”。基督徒最终的盼望,就是变成主的形状,荣上加荣。所以我们应当常常敞开心灵中的脸去亲近主,让主的荣光常常照亮我们,我们就能藉主的灵越过越变得像主了。“变成主的形状,荣上加荣”的路,乃在于“敞着脸,得以看见主的荣光”。我们更多看见主,就更多被主荣光所照射,也就能更多显出主的荣形。基督徒属灵生命的长进和变化,都在于主的灵作工在我们的里面。我们越多让主的灵自由运行在我们里面,我们的长进和变化就越能加快。

Book: 2 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

2 Corinthians 3:18 :“But 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 by the Spirit of the Lord.”

Today’s Meditation: We are like a mirror whose function is to reflect images. If we turn our mind to the Lord and notice Him, others can see Lord in us. Meanwhile, if we turn our mind to ourselves, others only see our ‘self’. The ultimate hope of a Christian is to transform into the same image from glory to glory just as the Lord. Thus, we need to get intimate with the Lord all the time so that His glory that shines onto us can transform us into His image. The path of “transforming” is in “unveiled face”. We can reveal more glory of the Lord when we see more of Him. The spiritual progression of a Christian is at the working of the Spirit of the Lord in him. As we experience more works of the Spirit in us, we can progress and transform faster.
