“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom). And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror 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.”2 Corinthians 3:17-18 AMPC
In every area of life, there are levels, higher and lower, the key is to be content on whichever level you are.
I have recently realized that I may be an “achievement junkie”! When I accomplish something, I have trouble savoring the moment, instead I am always on to the next big thing. Clawing to check off another one of my milestones on mental checklist of things that I must do. Yet, all of these accomplishments are earth are just that, accomplishments on earth, they will not follow to Heaven and have no bearings on my salvation.
Degrees of glory, on the other hand will forever follow me. How amazing (and slightly unfathomable) is it that our relationship with God currently will accompany us to Heaven? Our intimacy with Him is the only thing that will carry over into eternal life and God is more than happy to help us advance and get even closer to him!
