2 Corinthians 4:1-6; Mark 9:2-9;
Matt. 17:1-9; Luke 9:28-36; 2 Peter 1:16-18
We talked about that veil, that Satan has used to blind the minds of the unbelievers.
Here we’ve also seen the veil that Jesus used to hide His glory from men as He walked among them.
But in both cases, when that veil is removed, men can see Jesus for who He really is.
The Son of God. God in the flesh.
When that veil is removed, people can see the truth of the gospel and what it means.
When we experience God’s mercy, it shows.
Our instincts change and our priorities shift from gratifying our own ego, to exalting God.
We stop fearing what others think of us, and find our identity grounded in Christ.
It’s a transformation that shows God is working in our lives.
Paul recognized the transformative power of the gospel, and it drove his ministry.
We should let it drive ours as well.
