Lent Day 37

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 3: 12-18

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.


Today's Meditation: 

Just as in yesterday’s devotion, there is a repetition and reoccurrence of a word. That word is “veil” which appears five times (if you also include the word “unveiled’). Paul uses the example of Moses and the veil to compare and contrast the old covenant with the new covenant. This new covenant is now accessible, approachable and can be realized through the person of Jesus Christ and our committing our lives to him. And in doing so, according to Paul, “…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.”


Prayer:

Loving and gracious God, we are known as image bearers. May we always reflect your glory to others. May we also be continually transformed in your image. Amen.
