God Has a Purpose; That We All Be Conformed to the Image of His Son, Jesus. Will you miss it?


 
 

God's plan is that we have a progressive experience with Him.  There are many ways that the Bible refers to this progressive experience.  It is called walking in the Spirit.  It is called going on to perfection, perfection meaning completion or maturity.  It is called edification.

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.


  God Has Restored Much That Is Necessary So That The Church Can Come Into The Fullness.

2Co 3:18

(ALT)  But _we_ all, with a face having been unveiled, ourselves beholding as in a mirror [fig., contemplating] the glory of the Lord, are being transformed to the same image, from glory to glory, just as by [the] Spirit of [the] Lord.

(ASV)  But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.

(BBE)  But we all, with unveiled face giving back as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord who is the Spirit.

(Darby)  But *we* all, looking on the glory of the Lord, with unveiled face, are transformed according to the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Lord the Spirit.

(LITV)  But we all with our face having been unveiled, having beheld the glory of the Lord in a mirror, are being changed into the same image from glory to glory, as from the Lord Spirit.

(MKJV)  But we all, with our face having been unveiled, having beheld the glory of the Lord as in a mirror, are being changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Lord Spirit.

(WNT)  And all of us, with unveiled faces, reflecting like bright mirrors the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same likeness, from one degree of radiant holiness to another, even as derived from the Lord the Spirit.

(YLT)  and we all, with unvailed face, the glory of the Lord beholding in a mirror, to the same image are being transformed, from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
