God Changes His Children To Become Like Jesus
Construction Zone 10: God's Purpose for His Children
What is "sanctification"?
Sanctification is the way God changes believers through His Word to become like Jesus. 2 Corinthians 3:18b – Being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
This Truth Makes
We can meet and know Jesus Christ through the Bible. When we open up the Bible and read about Christ, it is like looking into a mirror and seeing Him and all His glory. We cannot see Him face-to-face yet (that will happen in heaven), but we can see and know Him through the Bible. That is why the Bible is compared to a mirror. (See James 1:22-25.)
When the Bible says from “glory to glory,” that means we are being changed from one stage of glory to another. Like a building that is built one level at a time, becoming like Christ does not happen overnight! The changing begins when we are converted, but we will keep changing until we get to heaven.
