2 Corinthians 3:12-14

2Co 3:12 Since we confidently expect this, we serve very openly,
2Co 3:13 not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites would not gaze at the product of a service that was being destroyed.
2Co 3:14 But their minds were hardened. Because to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil is still unlifted, because is it destroyed only by Christ.

an unveiling service

When Moses served the LORD by mediating the old covenant, one of the products of his service was that his face glowed with a brilliant shine. He veiled his head to prevent others from seeing that effect. Paul told the Corinthians that he had no intentions of veiling the gospel. In fact, he and his team serve the new covenant very openly. They know that Christ can remove the veil from people’s hearts, and anyone can freely shine brightly with God’s love and power.

LORD, give us the courage to openly confront the ignorance that keeps people from your gospel, and the freedom they can have in you.
