This week is Labor Day weekend so we won’t have E2 this week but we will resume on September 7th. In today’s Time with Abba, I wanted to share this passage with you.
14 But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. 15 Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. 16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:14-17
The key theme that Paul reminds us in this passage is how the Israelite’s minds became dull over time and thus the veil (old thinking) covered their hearts. Paul reminds us to simply turn to the Lord in order for that veil (old thinking) to be removed. By then, can we experience true freedom in the Lord. Today I want to ask you all these questions.
- In what sense is your mind being dull to your surroundings?
- How are you experiencing true freedom or how are you stuck in your old thinking?
Take time to seek the Lord and to know that in choosing Jesus, you can be set free from our old thinking.
