Another John Murray Quote

. . . As we come into intelligent, believing, and adoring encounter with the glory of Christ, we take on the characters which belong to him. 

We must remember, of course, that supernatural agency is at work in this process.  But the means by which this work of grace is wrought are clearly indicated.  The glory of Christ is portrayed and exhibited to us in the pages of Scripture.  The Holy Spirit illumines our minds and quickens our hearts to behold the glory; he takes the things of Christ and shows them to us.  He thus glorifies Christ.  The responses in us are adoration, love, obedience, and communion.  His glory fills our minds, captivates our hearts, constrains our wills.  Our whole being is rendered captive to him and his glory.
