And 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 the Spirit. (2 Cor 3:18).
The perfection of the law shone in Moses’ face, but it brought condemnation and dead to those who attempted to reflect its glory. They became reflections of the law; unbending, religious, hard hearted and judgmental. The law states mercilessly: There is something wrong with you! You are found wanting!
But, God declared a new and better way – Christ. Those who yield to Him become reflections of Him with ever increasing clarity and glory. Christ states with mercy: You are perfect in Me, and I am perfect as you. There is not enough love in your life? Look to Christ! By the way, my friend, when you say you lack love, which measuring stick do you utilize? The Law or Christ? God invites and welcomes you to enter His rest in faith – the dwelling place where you realize that Christ is all in all, and it’s here the transformation takes place where Christ in you becomes everything the Law cannot.
