Christianity, Healthy Faith

Be Like the Moon

“Levels” give off the idea that somehow, just like in the world, we must work for what we receive in God’s kingdom and that somehow if we do work harder than we will have MORE in Christ, get more from God, have more authority, or are better than others at perceived “lower levels”. This simply is no longer true in the New Covenant. In the New Covenant God’s mercy and grace freely have been given from the Son at the Cross at Cavalry where Jesus willingly allowed Himself to be put as our ransom. In the Kingdom there are no levels to attain like we have in the world and our jobs. In the Kingdom we simply reflect what is inside us. Are we always perfect….nope.  Yet, even the moon isn’t always full. But we do go from glory to glory. Here let’s look at this scripture:

“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 from the Lord, the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭NASB‬

And let’s dig out the meaning of the above words from their definition in the Greek text here:

We, each and every part of the total, having minds not blinded but able to perceive the glorious Majesty of Christ and the absolutely perfect inward excellence of Christ as we reflect like a mirror the same likeness as we change after being with; from the glory which we behold results in our own giving out a glory-sharing in the influence,the glorious condition of blessedness which is appointed and promised that true Christians enjoy now by the Spirit of the Lord.

All this happens while resting in Him; not working to be like Him. You can’t help changing as you look at the glorious Majesty of Christ which now lives inside you.  The moon does not have to work at all to reflect the sun. It simply rests and naturally reflects as it faces the sun.  This is the exact same way it happens with minds that are no longer blinded, who see Christ for Who He is.  They face the Son and reflect out Who now lives inside them.
