The developing process was fascinating. In the darkroom, we removed the photographic paper from the camera and immersed it in a tray of chemical developer. Immersed in the bath, the invisible image slowly began to appear on the blank photographic paper. First we could see a faint shadow, which became stronger and more precise until the image was just the way we wanted it. To fix the image, the photographic paper with the now-visible image was placed in a stop bath, then in a solution of fixing chemicals. Turning on the lights, we discovered the finished product: a well defined, sharp negative of the image, which could then be used to reproduce as many pictures as we desired. The pinhole camera method is simple: transformation by exposure.
That process reminds me of the apostle Paul’s statement in 2nd Corinthians 3:18: “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (NKJV) Being exposed to the light of God’s glory transforms our lives. Christ’s image, engraved in our hearts when His light shines in on us, is invisible when we first come to know Him. In the measure that we prayerfully dig into the Word, His Holy Spirit washes over us and brings that invisible image into clarity. The more we choose to expose ourselves to God’s glory and eternal truth, the more defined that image becomes, through the work of the Holy Spirit.
Let’s behold God’s glory by being in His Word daily to know Him better, to see how He works and to experience His greatness, power and mercy. Look closely at Jesus, who generously poured out His own life with compassion and forgiveness. Prayerfully immersing ourselves in Him, we are allowing the Holy Spirit to “transform us into the same image from glory to glory”. (2nd Corinthians 3:18 NKJV). That’s the pinhole camera method of transformation by exposure. And it is simple!
