Lent Day 32

Emergence

Indeed, to this very day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their minds; but when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And all of us, with unveiled faces, seeing the glory of the Lord as though reflected in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord, the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:7-18   Paul, speaking from his own experience and knowledge refers to a veil over the mind; a way of thinking concerning the Law of Moses. Without disregarding the law, Paul in his authority as a Pharisee and desire to serve God was forced (blinded) in order that he may think differently about God’s intended purpose for him. By his own culture and tradition blindness was considered a sin. By his own culture and tradition, only by the grace of God did he remove the veil and regain his sight. In our own desire to seek and serve God he removes every veil of in our understanding of his presence within us, that His glory may be revealed, and we too are free to boldly emerge transformed as we learn to leave all wilderness behind.
