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[a] 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 3:16-18, NIV)

 

2 CORINTHIANS 1-3

DAY 113: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Focus Verses For Today: 2 Corinthians 3:16-18

Today we begin 2 Corinthians! Corinth is a church made up of Gentiles - the people to whom Paul was specifically called, by God, to minister. The Gentiles, for the most part, were trying to understand Christianity and its relationship with Judaism. Unfortunately, Gentile believers, as demonstrated here, had to be wary of profiters who had no interest in their spiritual growth, only their money.

 

Ask God to share His understanding of 2 Corinthians 1-3 with you. Read 2 Corinthians 1-3. Let’s journey!

 

Chapters 1-3 speak of profiters coming to Corinth with counterfeit papers of authority from the church at Jerusalem. These profiters were binding the people of Corinth to the law which made them slaves to these false teachers. The Apostle Paul reminded them that he did not come to Corinth to take their money - he, the Apostle Paul, came to Corinth to set them free through faith in Christ Jesus. (2 Corinthians 1:1 - 3:18))

 

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[a] 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 3:16-18, NIV)

 

Are you filled by the Spirit of Jesus Christ? Are you bound by the law? The law’s purpose is to reveal what sin is. Jesus’, our risen Savior’s, shed blood granted us freedom from the bondage of sin. The veil is lifted. The temple curtain is torn. Your choices are either to be in bondage of the law or have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ breaking all bond. Godspeace! Happy Easter!
