“For if the ministry of condemnation has glory, much more does the ministry of righteousness abound in glory. For indeed what had glory, in this case has no glory because of the glory that surpasses it” (2 Corinthians 3:9-10).
We know that the law condemns us. Does that make the law bad? No, by no means; for without the law we could not know how far we are from the Lord and His ways. How much greater then is the gift of grace which restores us to walk in the Lord’s presence. Let us walk then in the glory of the Lord and rejoice in His salvation, for greater is He who is in you than any spirit of this age.
Lord, teach me the surpassing greatness of your grace and mercy. Help me to learn to obey, but greater still, teach me to love. Guide me in the way of truth which You have established from the beginning: not me Lord, but You in me. Guide me according to Your purpose that I would walk with You now and forever. Lead me according to Your grace in the way You know I need to go.
Lord Jesus, without You none of life would be possible. O Lord, how I have been hung up on the law and run from the greater glory of Your love and mercy. Guide me in the way of grace that I would forever abide in You and You abide in me. Guide me through Your Spirit that I would at all times and in all places be led by You, my rock and my Salvation. Amen.
