Behold means to fix the attention, to attend, to gaze

In 2 Corinthians 3 Paul tells us that "our lord is a Spirit
who brings freedom."
"And we, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the
Lord, are being transformed into the same image from
one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the
Lord who is the Spirit."

The key word here is "beholding." How do we do this?
It is taking a block of time with the Lord. No agenda,
but to be in His presence with His love letter--the Bible.
It is reading until something comes alive and then to
let that be the spring board for listening, responding.
It is to wallow in His goodness.

Yesterday we looked at how we bear his image, His
glory. It is part of our position in Christ. Today our
focus is on the transformation within that comes
through communication, daily intimacy.

Reader, don't let the urgency of the hour take you
away from that which is essential to Life.
