Week 34, Day 5

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 3
“But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” (2 Corinthians 3:14-18)
The veil is taken away, that we might reflect the glory of the Lord.
What is spiritual transformation? How do I become more like Jesus? How do I reflect God’s goodness in this world? How do I follow Jesus?
These are critically important questions for us as we think about where we are in our journey with Jesus. Some of us have been on the road a long time, and others are just getting on it as we all seek to become transformed into his image. NO matter where you are or how long you’ve been on the journey, the answer really comes down to what is now made available to us. Freedom in Christ with a new heart!
New life in Christ means the freedom to approach God. All of us have that privilege. To come to Christ and know him and seek his face. God is writing a new covenant on our hearts with Christ’s Spirit in us. The answer for all of us, is to consciously keep turning towards the Lord. Turn to him in prayer. Turn to him in our studies. Turn to him in every aspect of our lives. “God remind me of your presence, cover me in your grace, and show me your faithful kindness. Give me your love as I seek to love and care for others.”
You have freedom today to face the Lord.
