Behold! Christ makes all things new by taking away the old, sinful nature and making us new creations in His image. We become image bearers of His likeness.
Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! ~2 Corinthians 5:17 AMPC
Behold! It is amazing to find that beholding Christ can transform us into His very nature. We adopt His perspective and are forever changed for the better.
And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit. ~2 Corinthians 3:18 AMPC
As you behold Christ in His Holiness, and declare He is worthy, may you be encouraged, inspired, and transformed into His likeness.
