“But we all, with unveiled face reflecting as a mirror 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. iii.
18 (Revised Version).
I suppose there is almost no one who would deny, if it were put to him, that the greatest
possible attainment a man can make in this world is likeness to The Lord Jesus Christ.
Certainly no one would deny that there is nothing but character that we can carry out of
life with us, and that our prospect of good in any future life will certainly vary with the
resemblance of our character to that of Jesus Christ, which is to rule the whole future. We
all admit that; but almost every one of us offers to himself some apology for not being
like Christ, and has scarcely any clear reality of aim of becoming like Him. Why, we say
to ourselves, or we say in our practice, it is really impossible in a world such as ours is to
become perfectly holy. One or two men in a century may become great saints; given a
certain natural disposition and given exceptionally favouring circumstances, men may
become saintly; but surely the ordinary run of men, men such as we know ourselves to
be, with secular disposition and with many strong, vigorous passions—surely we can
really not be expected to become like Christ, or, if it is expected of us, we know that it is
impossible. On the contrary, Paul says, “We all,” “we all.” Every Christian has that for a
destiny: to be changed into the image of his Lord. And he not only says so, but in this one
verse he reveals to us the mode of becoming like Christ, and a mode, as we shall find, so
simple and so infallible in its working that a man cannot understand it without renewing
his hope that even he may one day become like Christ.
