WORD FOR THE WEEK February 15, 2015

  2 Corinthians 3:13,17,18  “We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while the radiance was fading away…..Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed int0 his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

The law came by Moses–Grace and truth by Jesus Christ.
The law demanded righteousness–Grace delivered righteousness.
The law required–grace provided.
The law was pressure-grace was relief.
The law was bondage–grace was freedom.  

Grace and truth can be modeled only in the light, in being seen. Because of the very nature of grace, we have no reason to hide.
