The Glory of God in His People

The following is adapted from a class titled, The Attributes of God, available free at the Blue Letter Bible InstituteSign up today!

One of the ways that the glory of God is revealed is through His people—those who come to know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

We read at the end of 2 Corinthians 3 the words that, “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.” As Christians, we are able to see the glory of the Lord, to behold it and see who God is. The Bible says, while you are doing that and looking at who the Lord is, in all His glory, you are being transformed. That is the word “metamorphosis”—like the caterpillar becoming a butterfly. “You are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory (the glory that is the Lord’s) to another (the glory you now have). For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:18). The Spirit does this work as you look into the Word.

How does one get transformed? How does one change? To put it in our vernacular, how does one go from what looks—spiritually speaking—like a bombed out, “grossville-type” person, into somebody that can be used of the Lord? How does it happen? It happens by the Holy Spirit using the Word of God, changing a person on the inside.

As you study God’s Word today, pray that the Spirit does the work of revealing God’s glory to you, and through you.


Father, You know how we come short of the glory of God. The psalmist said, “Not unto us but unto You give glory.” It seems like we are doing the opposite all the time. You said, “He who glories let him glory in the Lord.” God, help us to see that You are glory. Lord, we do not always reflect it as we should. But one day, we will be revealed that we are truly sons of glory. And we thank You, in Jesus’ wonderful name we pray. Amen.
