What change is wrought by beholding Jesus?


'But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image
from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord!' 2 Cor. 3: 18.
Note-A beautiful statue once stood in the market-place of an Italian city. It was the statue of a
Greek slave girl. It represented the slave as tidy and well dressed. A ragged, uncombed little street child
coming across the statue in her play one day, stopped and gazed at it in admiration. She was captivated by
it. She gazed long and lovingly. Moved by a sudden impulse, she went home and washed her face and
combed her hair. Another day she stopped again before the statue and admired it, and got a new idea. Next
day her tattered clothes were washed and mended. Each time she looked at the statue she found something
in its beauties to admire and copy, until she was a transformed child. By beholding we become changed.
