True Freedom

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. 2 Corinthians 3:12-18

Paul proclaimed that in Christ, we “are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory.” Our veil has been removed and we have freedom.


Freedom from what exactly?

Freedom from fear, guilt, shame, legalism.

The Christian life is not a bunch of rules to follow, duties to perform, or prayers to recite. Some of the Chistian life has those elements but they are not the whole of our Walk with Christ.

As Sons and Daughters of the Most High God, we are now free to enter the Holy of Holies and lay it all out. Daily or even hourly if we so desire.

We aer free to love our enemies, while befoe we were bound by hatred and bitterness.

The Christian life is freeing, if we let Him do the freeing.
