Beholding and Becoming: Christ Formed in You

In 2 Corinthians 3:18, Paul speaks of beholding (worshiping) Christ and becoming like Him (being transformed) from one degree of glory to another–and this work of Christ being formed in us is by the Holy Spirit. Powerful. Amazing.

His work is relentless and brutal and beautiful. It radically transforms, ruining us for this world and wrecking our love for sin, as it restores us to what God intended us to be.

An unusually helpful book for helping us to understand and progress in our pursuit of “beholding and becoming” is Brian Hedges‘ new book, Christ Formed in You. Check it out at Westminster Books–and trust me–you’ll want to buy it.
