2 Corinthians 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.”
Transformed is an incredible word. In the Greek language, it suggests that a thorough and dramatic change has taken place. The believer’s transformation begins at salvation, but the fantastic truth is that it keeps going when we immerse ourselves in God’s Word.
Immersion produces unbelievable results. I know this because I met a soldier on his way to a renowned language school operated by the U.S. military. His covert assignment required him to blend into a foreign region without detection by learning the native language, dialect, and customs—a feat that required total immersion. Not a word of his native tongue would be spoken or written by the instructor as he learned the language and ways of another country. That soldier knew he would come out of his studies changed.
In a biblical sense, the apostle Peter was a lot like that soldier. His transformation into a deep-thinking, courageous defender of the faith came through immersion in the Scriptures, year after year. Peter went from glory to glory, and the uneducated Galilean fisherman eventually penned the technical and theologically profound book of 2nd Peter. God’s Word, energized by the Spirit, can do that when it gets inside a person.
Dear saint, when you accepted Jesus, a tremendous change occurred, and the course of your life changed. By God’s design, you are not and never will be, the same. I encourage you to submerge yourself in the Bible and watch how the Spirit transforms your life.
Awaiting His Return,
