4 all of us, as with an unveiled face, behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, and are changed into the same image from glory to glory, by the Spirit of the Lord. Paul is saying that they all saw the glory of the Lord, as though looking into a mirror; and as they beheld the glory of the Lord in the face of Christ Jesus, they were changed into the image of Christ themselves [God's image of true righteousness and holiness] from glory to glory. This is not make believe Christianity, this must actually occur in you to attain salvation; and it will occur if you seek the Lord with all your heart and soul.

For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness,"made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 2 Cor 4:6. [Your persistent seeking of the Lord, obeying his voice, will result in Jesus Christ appearing in your heart.]

When Christ, Who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Col 3:4. [When he appears, you enter the Kingdom, and also appear in glory.]

Strip yourselves of your former nature that controlled your conduct, which corrupts itself through lusts and desires that spring from delusion; and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and put on the newly created nature [of Christ], which is created in God's image of true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:22-24. We are changed into the same image [God's image of true righteousness and holiness] from glory to glory.

You are recreated in God's image, which is glorious. But the world does not see Christ; for such a person's life in hidden in Christ Jesus. Col 3:3. You will know them by their fruits. Mat 7:20. And the fruit of the Spirit is: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness (or meekness), and self-control. Gal 5:21-23.]

all of us, as with an unveiled face, behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, and are changed into the same image from glory to glory, by the Spirit of the Lord.

From the Word of the Lord within: "Seek his face. Seek his face in ever increasing glory."
