“But if the ministry of death, in letters engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the glory of his face, fading as it was, how will the ministry of the Spirit fail to be even more with glory?” (2 Corinthians 3:7-8)
We often settle for less when the Lord is offering more. If life came through the law, why then the death of Christ? Life comes through the One who gives life and in Him is all glory. Do not settle for what is less when the Lord offers the fulness of life. Live in and into Him through all things and do not live in fear. He has come to lead us into light and life that we may abide with Him forever.
Lord, teach me these mysteries that I would not settle, as some do, for a fearful life of constantly trying to live up to the standard of the law. I fail. But in You, I can live the life for which You have created me. Lead me in this new life which does not settle, but continues in the upward path of life into life eternal. Lead me to see through the traps and snares of this age to hear the upward call of Your grace and mercy.
Thank You Lord Jesus that You have made level the field. You have carved out the only way to true life. May I be a willing participant in the salvation You have prepared, walking with You each step of the way where You lead. Guide me that I may not so much seek to understand everything but rather how to follow You as every promise of the Father becomes a reality of the eternal life You make possible. Amen.
