I thank You for Your holiness, for Your purity. In a world full of evil and hurt, it is a comfort to know that the God I worship is purely good and perfect.
You ask us to become more like You, developing Your likeness and reflecting Your glory, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Learning to live our life in step with Your guidance and wisdom. I will admit that this scares me at times because You are so holy and infallible. The standard is so high. Help me to realize that You do not expect perfection-- to say, think, and do all the right things (this would be us trying to earn our righteousness which You alone can provide). You want my heart and desires to become more and more like Your own, leading us to overflow with Your love for this world. I recommit to walking in Your ways. Thank You for graciously equipping me for this task as I move forward and for Your mercy and forgiveness when I falter.
2 Corinthians 3:18 "We, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Holy Spirit."
