Our Responsibility in the Pursuit of Holiness

Our specific responsibility in the pursuit of holiness as seen in II Corinthians 3:18, then, is to behold the glory of the Lord as it is displayed in the gospel.  The gospel is the “mirror” through which we now behold His beauty.  One day we shall see Christ, not as in a mirror, but face to face (I John 3:2).  Until then we behold Him in the gospel.  Therefore we must “preach the gospel to ourselves every day.”
