2 Corinthians 3:7-18 – The Metamorphosis of the Soul

2 Corinthians 3:7-18 – The Metamorphosis of the Soul

Paul in today’s text will tell those of us who are born-again believers that we are in the process of having our souls transformed through supernatural metamorphosis into the image of Christ.

The IVP Commentary describes this process as follows: “Transformation is not a one-shot affair. It is transformation into His likeness that is with ever-increasing glory (v. 18). With ever-increasing glory is literally “from glory to glory.” The phrase denotes a splendor that steadily grows, in contrast to the short-lived glory of Moses’ face.”

What part do we have in this process of the metamorphosis of our souls? We simply gaze upon Christ. The more we gaze upon Christ, the more we are changed into His image. What a deal!!!

May all of us be encouraged to set our minds more and more on Him,
