“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass 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. 3:18
I could rant and rave about this verse, how great it is. but really, it’s still hard for me. I have been a Christian most of my life. I have heard what Jesus would call “naysayers” changing the Word and making it more like them. This verse is saying we need to realize it’s not about us, and the moment we do is when He takes us from glory to glory… It’s actually simple.
Like, really simple. Unfortunately, I am over here struggling myself with it. How can such a huge G-d actually care about such small creatures as us? …. but, it’s true. He treasures what the world might call “scum.”
It says in Matthew 25:40 “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
Basically, He is plainly stating that He wants the shattered, the oppressed, in His kingdom! And that they, will inherit glory, not the ones who go around spouting Pride. Pride isn’t of G-d, that is His alone.
Can you see, people?!! Who is the most oppressed by the Christian church???? the LGBT community, that’s freakin’ who. We literally are the ones He talks about. Gosh, darnit I want the whole world to know!
