Because of Christ, mankind has the opportunity to be reconciled with God and have the veil removed in order to see and perceive clearly.

2 Corinthians 3:12-17
“Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
Those who are not walking in relationship with God, cannot clearly perceive and understand the things of God. Because of Christ, mankind has the opportunity to be reconciled with God, and have that veil removed in order to see and perceive clearly.
I’m very rough on my sunglasses. A few months of mistreating them, and the lenses are clouded, scratched, and difficult to see through. Walking, driving, and working all become more difficult, because my vision is obscured.
The same is true in my spirit. Without Christ, I trip over things I should have seen…and get distracted by obstructions that don’t exist. Even the light which should illuminate my steps, becomes a blinding haze and fog. Christ’s desire is to remove the obstructions from my heart, so that I could walk in the freedom of clear vision and understanding. His desire is to reveal his glory to me, as I walk in covenant with him.
This week, I must walk in relationship with my savior so I could see clearly. I must allow him to remove anything from my heart which would obstruct my ability to see and perceive the things of the Spirit.
God, thank you for the privilege of walking in covenant with you. Open my eyes to see you clearly, and thank you for the freedom you give me to walk with understanding. May your glory shine through me this week, to bring hope to someone who does not yet know you!
