2 Corinthians 3

For if the Ministry of Doom had glory, how much more infinitely abounding in splendor and glory must the Ministry of Life be that produces and fosters righteous living and right standing with God!  Indeed, in view of this fact, what once had splendor [the glory of the Law] has come to have no splendor at all, because of the overwhelming glory that exceeds and excels it [the glory of the Gospel]. For if that which was but passing and fading away came with splendor, how much more must that which remains and is permanent abide in glory and splendor! ...And all of us,... [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.

We really ought to be a very shiny people.  Not the aluminum foil kind of shiny; but the full-moon kind.  All of the glory and splendor from the Ministry of Life we have and are being changed by from "one degree of glory to another"  should be reflecting a tremendous amount of  bright glory back to the Father.  If we aren't shiny in this dark world which is being administered to by the Ministry of Doom - how will they ever see the Light of Glory, Christ Jesus?  So, no gibbous moon reflections; but a full, harvest moon to see by and that reflects the Light of the Son.  Especially that the harvest times may continue beyond the light of day.

Shine on, my spiritual siblings.
