In a perishing world there is only one hope and that hope is in Christ. We are experiencing life in fast motion and if we don’t step back and realize that we are the light of Christ for others in this dark world.
2 Corinthians 3:13
We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to prevent the Israelites from seeing the end of what was passing away.
Before anyone comes to Christ our minds are veiled, veiled to Him and wanting to know Him more. Seeking the things of this world for our happiness, turning away when someone talks about Him to you and thinking that Jesus doesn’t care, that He doesn’t direct your life you do.
2 Corinthians 3:14
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.
Those who believe in Him have life, others will seek after the things of this world which will never give you peace. There is only Christ who gives everlasting hope and takes the veil of everyday living off your eyes so that you can see Him plainly .
2 Corinthians 3:15
Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts.
To those who do not believe in Christ there will never be freedom, turning from Christ your life is veiled you will not listen to the true message of the Holy Spirit as He speaks to you , thus bound by your unbelief.
2 Corinthians 3:16-17
But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
To those who think that hearing about Christ is foolishness those who turn away will not see the glory of God. The word of God is covered to them and may seek knowledge of man’s thoughts or words but true wisdom comes only from a love for Christ and a relationship with Him.
2 Corinthians 4:3
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.
To those who are perishing, the god of this age will always have a hold on you, that god you seek after is anything that isn’t Christ, it’s the thing that keeps your mind busy and focused away from seeking truth which is found only in the gospel.
2 Corinthians 4:4
The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
When we seek in trying to find happiness in things of the world and when that fails (and it will) we are confident that Christ never fails, He is always with us, when believers speak the truth in Christ, listen to what the Spirit is trying to tell say about Him, it could save your life.
