2 Corinthians 3:10
“For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. 11And if what was fading away came with glory, how much greater is the glory that lasts?”…16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of Lord is, there is freedom. 18And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is Spirit.”
From Glory to Glory, Moses showed us the glory of the law. I am so thankful for this. I am very thankful that I am convicted of the things I do wrong. I have a genuinely repentant heart. Many people in our “Its all good society” don’t have any idea that what they are doing is wrong. Today many people don’t know or don’t care that their behavior is bad for them. They have no idea those behaviors that can wound their soul. In our society it is just called depression or anxiety and they have a pill for that. So, I am very thankful I have am aware of the first Glory of the law.
The greatest Glory is what I am most thankful for. I have spent much of my life living in defeat, convicted of my failure. Convicted I deserve the worst. At one point in my life I felt so hopeless I was certain, I could never get on track, never loose the weight, never quit drinking, never get my finances in order…why try? I longed for someone who could love me just the way I am. Then I found someone who did…Jesus. He loved and loves me in my brokenness. He loved and loves me regardless of my behavior. BECCAUSE OF HIS AMAZING LOVE I want to do better. I want to take care of my body. I want to read His word. I want to be the woman He created me to be. When I fall short, (which I often do). I want to repent, accept the forgiveness He died to give me and press on. This is FREEDOM!! This is the Greatest Glory!!
From the Glory of the Law, to the Glory of the Lord Jesus be inspired to press on today!!
Be fit and be blessed,
