I am very happy to share with you all a powerful word centered on the transformation of the believer into the glory of God. From the moment we receive Christ as a personal savior, God begins in us a process of transformation through his majestic glory that is poured into us through the Holy Spirit.

The apostle Paul expresses it as follows:

"For the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. Therefore, all, looking at the glory of the Lord with the naked eye, are transformed from glory to glory in the same image, as by the Spirit of the Lord "(2 Corinthians 3:18).

It would be interesting to ask:
How do you see yourself?
Can you honestly evaluate and evaluate your behavior without falling into conviction? Can you see how much you need, but also see how much you have achieved? Remember this: where you are now is not where you will end. Have a vision of the ultimate goal, or you'll never leave the race.

I share with you another translation of 2 Corinthians 3:18, which says: "God changes us from one degree of glory to another." In other words, both personal changes in us and changes in circumstances happen gradually.

You are in a degree of glory right now!

If you are born again, you are somewhere in the path of the righteous. Maybe not as far as you would like, but you are on the right track. There was a time when you were totally out of a covenant relationship, for lack of faith (Ephesians 2: 11-12). But now you belong to the family of God and He is transforming you every day.

Enjoy the glory you have now and do not be envious of the location of others. They also had to go where you are now.

We have a strong (carnal) tendency to compare our glory with the glory of others. The devil arranges things for us to think like that, but it is not God's way. God wants us to realize that he has a special plan for each of us. Satan wants to make sure we are not happy with what we have now. He wants us to be competing with each other, always wanting what someone else has. When we don't know how to enjoy the glory we have at this moment, we only slow down the maturity process. I do not believe that we advance to the next degree of glory until we learn to enjoy the degree in which we are.

In this sense, a "glory" is simply the place it occupies now, which is better than the previous place.

Usually, we are very hard on ourselves. We could grow faster if we relax more. We cannot live according to our feelings in these matters. Our adversary makes sure that we often have the feeling that we are a disaster without remedy, or that God is not working in our lives. We have to learn to live according to the Word of God, and not according to our feelings. His word indicates that, while we believe, he is working on us!

Let's not overlook: ....... we are transformed from glory to glory in the same image, as by the Spirit of the Lord.
