The Wonder of Christ

June 27, 2022 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

We know that when he appears, we will be like him because we will see him as he is. —1 John 3:2

I’m blessed to live in a beautiful part of the country near Lake Michigan. I love the sunsets we experience on a regular basis. Each time my husband and I ooh and aah. We love the wildflowers; we love the golden hour, when that late afternoon sun is glistening on the lake or the river where we live, and the breeze is blowing in the trees.

All these things are beautiful, and they inspire wonder in our hearts! But they all point to the beauty of our Savior. The truest, deepest wonder is found in Him.

We can’t see Him physically, but with eyes of faith we behold the King in His beauty, and we look forward to that day when we will see Him as He is. In fact, this vision of Christ is a transforming vision. By spending time gazing upon His beauty, we are—slowly but surely— transformed into His likeness. We become like whatever we fix our attention upon.

Make it Personal

Ask God to help you fix your gaze more on Him and less on your circumstances and the things of this world.
