Whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of
the Lord is, there is freedom. So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord.
And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
-2 Corinthians 3:16-18 NLT
Using the veil that covered Moses face as a backdrop, Paul speaks of a religious veil that covers our minds so we cannot understand the truth. He teaches us that this veil is removed when we turn to the Lord and surrender to the Holy Spirit. I have found that to be an ongoing process. It is like the veil has many levels that need to be peeled back.
As each layer of that veil is removed we become more and more like Jesus. With each removed layer our vision of God becomes clearer. This speaks to me of the transforming and unveiling ministry of the Spirit in our lives as he prepares us to be an accurate reflection of God's glorious image. This is the unveiling journey of someone who turns to the Lord.
I am in need Lord. My vision is obscured. Come Holy Spirit. Remove the veil that clouds my vision.
