2 Corinthians 3:18
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 by the Spirit of the Lord.
WE MUST ALL LEARN TRANSPARENCY
The church must learn again the power of transparency.
Most revivals have started when people begin to be real before God – and share honestly about their issues.
OPEN AND UNVEILED FACES
Leaders who cover their issues are leaders with plastic masks.
There is no place for secrecy in the body of Christ.
If we are struggling – we ask for prayer.
If we are sick – we ask for prayer.
If we are yielding to temptation – we ask for prayer.
If our marriage is not working – we ask for prayer.
BEHOLDING IN ONE ANOTHER
We grow together when we can behold in one another the work of God’s grace.
Transparency does not hide your private life from your public life.
The work of God’s grace is an ongoing transformation – which is the essence of the gospel.
We are all on this grace journey.
FROM GLORY TO GLORY
Grace takes you from glory to glory. We are to help one another yield to the transforming power of God at work in our lives.
We should celebrate the tears of repentance and the shouts of joyful freedom.
BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD
The Holy Ghost is the power of God at work in us.
He comes as
light – to reveal
Life – to heal
Love – to feel
AN OPEN FACE COMES FROM AN OPEN HEART TO THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
