The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)
Today we conclude our 40 days of Discipline journey. It is a great day to consider what we have learned, make commitments, and share. We also look forward to a glorious Easter Sunday tomorrow.
This year we focused on the theme: God’s Glory. We will never be able to fully comprehend God’s glory, but we have seen over and over again that it is revealed in His Son, Jesus. We focus on the Disciplines during our 40-days journey because practicing them draws us closer to God’s revealed glory, Jesus. As you review our journey together I would remind you that this study is not about the pursuit of information only. We are much more interested in transformation. In that regard, I will remind you of a verse we considered earlier in our study:
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
As we look forward to Resurrection Sunday and beyond, I pray that we will continue to pursue the Disciplines as evidence of our commitment to being “transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory”.
What will you take away from this year’s journey to aid your growth in Christ?
