Glory In Christ – The New Covenant

In his second letter to the Corinthians, Paul is talking about how there is greater glory in the new covenant of Jesus Christ than the old one through the law and Moses. Under the old covenant there is judgement and sin. But under the new covenant, there is freedom. While we do our best to live by the law, we do not go to eternal jail when we fail because Christ died so that our sins could be forgiven when we repent.

Scripture:
“But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.” – 2 Corinthians 3:16

Observation/Application:
In his second letter to the Corinthians, Paul is talking about how there is greater glory in the new covenant of Jesus Christ than the old one through the law and Moses. Under the old covenant there is judgement and sin. But under the new covenant, there is freedom. While we do our best to live by the law, we do not go to eternal jail when we fail because Christ died so that our sins could be forgiven when we repent.

Under the new covenant, the veil of our hearts is uncovered, and it is exposed. We are known by God by what is in our hearts. So if we seek God first, and love Him with all our heart, with all our mind, with all our soul, and with all our strength, we can live with the ultimate hope and freedom. “Therefore, since we have such hope, we are very bold.” – 2 Cor 3:12 As Christians, we can be bold in our faith, because we have the answer, and that answer is Jesus. We shouldn’t cover our faces, or live in the shadows. We can be bold like a lion because we know the truth. And if God is with us, who can be against us? – (Rom 8:31)
