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 Corinthians 3:18


In John Stott’s Final Address delivered at the Keswick Convention, July 17, 2007, he made the following statement:

I remember very vividly, some years ago, that the question which perplexed me as a younger Christian (and some of my friends as well) was this: what is God’s purpose for His people? Granted that we have been converted, granted that we have been saved and received new life in Jesus Christ, what comes next? Of course, we knew the famous statement of the Westminster Shorter Catechism: that man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever: we knew that, and we believed it. We also toyed with some briefer statements, like one of only five words— love God, love your neighbor. But somehow neither of these, nor some others that we could mention, seemed wholly satisfactory. So I want to share with you where my mind has come to rest as I approach the end of my pilgrimage on earth, and it is—God wants His people to become like Christ. Christlikeness is the will of God for the people of God.

So God, through the Holy Spirit, is doing His transforming work in you! I encourage you to to read John Stott’s address. You can find it here.
