This weeks memory verse.
The gospel not only forgives our sins, it literally transfigures us! Just like at the Mount of Transfiguration, the glory of Jesus shines into our lives and changes us from the inside out. It reproduces this very image of the glorious God in our character, the kind of glory that will not pass away but will pass into eternity. In the Old Testament, only one man had his face shining with the glory of God (Moses). But now, we ALL, with unveiled faces, reflect the glory of God with increasing glory! We must not come to God with a spirit of timidity and fear, but with boldness we approach God and cry “Abba Father!”
