Deiform (2 Corinthians 3:7-18)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “deiform.”  I remember back in high school when I was in Latin class for my second language.  It was actually a lot of fun.  When we got into the honors program the last couple of years, we started to read stuff in Latin a lot to translate.  Some of that stuff was Greek mythology.  It was funny to read about how all of the gods used to fight and because of that bad things happened to humans down on earth as a consequence.  They were really full of themselves.  Well, lucky for us, we have a true God who makes us in his perfect image…

“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 Cor 3:18

My question is: how do people perceive your image?  The good thing is, if you give God a chance, you have the ability to live and reflect his glory.  He gives you the opportunity, and you just have to respond.  My prayer is that you respond favorably today.  As we continually receive his ever-increasing glory, remember that we will one day solidify our deiform nature when we meet him face-to-face.

Praying for you,
