2 Corinthians 3:12-18 (NIV)
12 Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. 13 We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to prevent the Israelites from seeing the end of what was passing away. 14 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. 15 Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. 16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 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.
How do I, now in this life, contemplate (reflect) the Lord’s glory?
As we study Your Word, You enter our lives and we are transformed into Your likeness with ever-increasing glory. When You are present in our lives, we become brighter and more beautiful. We are free to know, love and serve You. Lord, thank you for this privilege that we can approach you with freedom and boldness. Thank you that we can look into Your face and reflect Your glory in the world. Help us to fix our eyes on You. Amen
