Jesus spoke of this glory in John 17:22, when He said, “I have given them the glory that You gave Me that they may be one as we are one.” When we become Christians, we undergo a spiritual transformation…a invisible process, a metamorphosis if you will, where our very character is changed. And by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit we become a mirror, reflecting Jesus to others. But you’ll also notice that this Scripture says we are “being” transformed with “ever-increasing” glory…which means His work in us will never be completely done until that day we meet Him face to face.
Change us O Lord. We are a people more concerned with keeping up with fad and fashion than allowing our character to undergo a metamorphosis…a renewing of our minds to become more like You This corrupt world has us believing that we can’t do anything to change ourselves…that we are just victims with no hope. We need to become a radically different people…a people rejecting the status quo and reaching for Your plan and purpose for this nation and world. Change us O Lord.
