The Power of Beholding

I’ve meditating on the principle of “beholding”. Simply put, the principle is that we become what we behold.

(Beholding meaning more than just looking at something occasionally. Beholding is more along the lines of habitually gazing intently [pondering deeply] at something, so as to soak it up into your being)

So, if we become what we habitually behold, then:

* If we behold worldly TV, movies, sports, etc; then we become spiritually weak, selfish, & carnal believers.

* If we behold evil like porn & violent movies, etc; then we become depraved, deceitful, and dangerous.

* If we behold the law of God as requirements for being right with Him, then we become judgmental, self-righteous, demanding, rude, overbearing, graceless, legalists.

* But praise Jesus, when we behold Him, we become grace-filled, loving, kind, truthful, bold, wise, disciplined, etc.

Let’s behold the awesomeness of our Lord Jesus!

“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
‭‭II Corinthians‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭NKJV‬
