Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
Moses veiled his face to hide the end of the glory what would later be set aside in the new covenant.
The minds of the Israelites were hardened and indeed still are. Only Jesus can remove the veil that is now over their minds.
When a person turns to the Lord, the veil is lifted. The Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. Now we see His glory with unveiled faces, and we are being transformed from glory to glory in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Religion blinds us with veils, and binds us with rules that restrict behaviour but do nothing to change the heart.
Jesus comes and takes the veil away. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. This is not freedom to sin, but freedom to carry the glory of Christ, and to grow in His glory as we look towards Him.
As I focus on His glory, the lure of sin seems less attractive, and I find myself choosing righteousness rather than sin.
Lord help me to look upon you with an unveiled face. Today I choose your glory and your freedom. Amen.
