Scripture Of The Week – 2 Corinthians 3:18


2 Corinthians 3 verse 18: {Message Bible}:

“All of us! Nothing between us and god, our faces shining with the brightness of His face. And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like Him.”

When  we accept Christ Jesus as Our Lord, Our Savor, and Our friend, the separation from God because of original sin is lifted. This is The New Covenant, through accepting Christ Jesus for what He has done and for who He really is, all that He has becomes ours, and all that we have should become His. The most unequal transaction ever, God enters our lives.

Under the Old Testament their faces needed to to covered, firstly because no one could look at God directly, and secondly God cannot look at sin.

Now there is no veil on our face before God. We are being transformed by a process, the process comes as we seek more after him. The more we seek Him, the more of the self side of our lives is being transformed, to be more and more like Him.

This world that is fascinated by darkness, which is the opposite of all God is. Let us be vessels of His Glorious Light, so that we made be witnesses of His Glorious Light, so others will see and have the chance to Know how to obtain it and live in it.

His Word also says, in Mathew 5 verse 14 to 16 {Message Bible]:

“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. we’re going public with This, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you a light -bearer, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now That I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand – shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, The generous Father in heaven.”

What a privilege it is to witness God Glorious Light, to a world full of darkness.

God Bless.
