Changed By Glory
Have you ever heard the phrase, "Show me your friends, I'll show you your future?" Basically meaning that who you spend time with you will become. However, in life, sometimes this statement doesn't always prove to be true. For instance, I can remember hanging around some really talented basketball players in my neighborhood growing up thinking that if I spent enough time with them maybe, just maybe I will be able to become like them. Yeah, well let's just say that a pair of Air Jordan's, countless hours of "chilling with talented people", and a whole lot of high hopes sometimes only results in fantastic comic relief.
However, we will discover in this week's passage that Paul essentially says the same thing in regards to our spiritual lives, the difference being that it always proves to be true. - You will become what you behold. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
