We Become What We Behold

Posted on January 25, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Jeremiah 2:5b “…they…went after worthless things and became worthless.”

The Lord spoke these words to “all the clans of the house of Israel…” about their forefathers through the prophet Jeremiah.

It is a reminder to us that we become what we behold.
To behold: to gaze upon (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/behold)

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: For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”

It gives us pause to seriously consider what we behold. What captures our attention? What holds our gaze? Are we going after worthless things like the Israelites of old or are we beholding the Greatest Treasure, The Beautiful One, The One True God, The Eternal One, The Lover of our soul, The Lifter of our chin, our Maker?

Friend, “Behold your God.” Is 40:9
