We are being changed, thankfully

2 Cor 3:18
"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord."

As Jesus was transformed and His glory shone out [Transfiguration], so He removes the veil over our minds and hearts as we turn to Him. And now, we see the glory of God in Christ. This means we will be transformed into Christ’s image. The point of our salvation is not just to spare us from punishment for sin. We are to be remade – transfigured - into the image of God. This Table transforms. The two on the road to Emaaus talked with Jesus but did not see Him until they sat at the table and He broke bread. Notice the Bread was not transformed, they were. And so are we. This table is meant to transform us, into the glory of Jesus. It doesn’t happen automatically. It takes trust. So look to Jesus. Seeing Him makes all the difference.
