Behold to Become: Reflecting on Jesus to Reflect Jesus. That’s something we’ve been pondering for the past several months at Align.
We’ve been mindful of beholding Christ – seeing Him, listening to Him, allowing Him to fill us with a sense of wonder and awe. We behold Him as though we’re looking in a mirror… adjusting our hearts and our actions to align with Him.
We behold Jesus through creation, and through His Word.
We behold Him together with our clients. One client recently asked, “Can we please meet to renew our minds through scripture together?”
Paul shares about this truth in 2 Corinthians 3:18: “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.”
You know, Thanksgiving is a wonderful opportunity to contemplate the Lord’s glory. Creation outside is beautiful. The Thanksgiving scriptures we read, the food we eat, the people we’re with – are beautiful. And uniting our hearts together to thank the One who gives all this to us – is glorious.
As we behold the glory of Jesus this Thanksgiving, we can trust Him to transform our lives into His image with ever-increasing glory that comes from Him, and draws more people to Him. Happy Thanksgiving, friends! We have all been created for Christ.
