“If we want to see God’s glory, if we long for ourselves and others to be transformed into godliness, we must dwell on the gospel, where his glory is most clearly seen. It is the gospel into which we are to look, and it is by the power of the gospel that we will be changed.
Paul informs us that by his grace God has shone the ‘light of the gospel of the glory of Christ’ (2 Cor 4.4) into our hearts. It is in this light that we see everything else: who he is, what he has done, who we are and how we change. It is this light that first enabled us to see our glorious Savior, and it is this light that continues to transform us. Unlike unbelievers, who have blinded minds, we have received from God eyes to see ‘the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ’ (2 Cor 4.6) The knowledge of God’s glory is revealed to us as we look upon the face of the Son. And it is this knowledge that will transform us.”
