God is up to something over here.
He never changes. But He is always moving.
And I want to be on the front lines. Moving right behind him.
It is the greatest honor of my life to follow Him.
And ever so often, I feel a pull.
Hard to explain.
A pull in a new direction.
He gives me a Holy Spirit heads up – letting me know that we are not to sit in one place too long.
He’s up to something.
And what it is I’m not sure.
Read this passage carefully…
Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God, who has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:4
Do you know this about yourself? You. Precious you. Competent to minister. Not because of what you’ve done. Not because of all your knowledge of Scripture. But because the Holy Spirit dwells in you.
Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end [speaking here of the Mosaic covenant – Read Exodus 34:34]. But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. 2 Corinthians 3:12-14 – italics mine
Moses went to the mountain and saw the Lord. He was given the Law. He saw the Glory of God. And had to cover His face with a veil. But Christ…Oh sweet Christ. He is the new covenant. The sacrifice and the meal. In Him the veil is lifted for all to see the Glory of God.
Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. 2 Corinthians 3:15
Is a veil over your heart? Do you feel separate? Other?
But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. Now the Lord is Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:16-17
In Christ, we are free. No veil. No curtain. We move right into His presence. We, too, get to see His Glory.
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. 2 Corinthians 3:18
Did you get that? We see him, with unveiled face. We behold his Glory. THEN we too are transformed into the same image.
We don’t just see his glory. We partake.
The KJV says we are changed into the same image from glory to glory.
We don’t behold his glory and stay the same. He moves us. He changes us. From one glory to another. From one degree of glory to the next.
For this comes from the Lord who is Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
So even though I can’t say I know exactly what He is doing, I know that he is moving me from glory to glory.
You too, friend.
For His glory, he is transforming you. Moving you from one degree of glory to another.
I will be blogging less over the next few weeks.
I need some intentional face time with Jesus.
Me on my face, that is.
What is He up to?
Seek him intently. And be transformed.
From glory to glory.
