“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 3:18 NLT
The glory that the Spirit imparts to the believer is more excellent and lasts longer than the glory that Moses experienced. By gazing at the nature of God with unveiled minds, we can be more like him. In the Good News, we see the truth about Christ, and it transforms us morally as we understand and apply it. Through learning about Christ’s life, we can understand how wonderful God is and what he is really like. As our knowledge deepens, the Holy Spirit helps us to change. Becoming Christlike is a progressive experience (see Romans 8:29; Galatians 4:19; Philippians 3:21; 1 John 3:2). The more closely we follow Christ, the more we will be like him.

“That veil removed” this comes with salvation. We were blind, and now we can see. Sin hides God’s glory and blinds us to the glory of God. God’s glory does not live in heaven but should live in us. When the veil is removed, we should reflect God’s glory that is contained in us.
With unveiled eyes, we should gaze at God, with open minds we can be more like Him. Then, in turn, reflect that, to the world. When we are transformed through salvation and truth about Jesus, it’s then we see how good God is.
How do we become more like Him? Through learning about Jesus. The Bible is key in learning. My thought is, “it’s not just about learning, it’s about applying.” Just like the commentator says, becoming Christ-like is progressive. Learn then apply.
The same applies to our daily lives. We have to be open to learning, not closed and veiled. Let that knowledge fill us and reflect in daily tasks. Keep on doing this until we are perfect in what we do. It all starts with an open mind and a willingness to improve. Complaining will never get a result. Reflecting and improving will. At the end of the day we have to make the correct choice. Something important here is faith, along with all the above have Faith in God.
Remove that veil, open yourself to new beginnings and let that reflect in your daily activity. Empower yourself with the knowledge to achieve that edge. Most importantly apply this diligently and then rely on Faith in God to produce fruit. Where does this message come from, the Bible God’s word a revelation?
All the inspiration right there in the Bible.
“Lord I thank you for your word. Please, Lord, help me reach out to those who need this revelation. In Jesus name. Amen.”
