Beholding is Becoming

This awesome article written by John Piper to "An Incomplete, Insecure Teenager" applies to my life just as much as it does to any high school teen. It is a "must read" for anyone who is interested. I could quote the entire letter as a favorite quote, but here is one great excerpt:

"The most important text on my emergent frogishness became 2 Corinthians 3:18
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.
This was one of the greatest secrets I ever discovered: Beholding is becoming.
Introspection must give way to amazement at glory. When it does, becoming happens. If there is any key to maturity it is that. Behold your God in Jesus Christ. Then you will make progress from tadpole to frog. That was a great discovery."
