Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. (NKJV).2 Corinthians 3:16
For the past two days we’ve been expounding on how to be more like Christ even as we look deep into the mirror of Gods glory with unveiled faces.
Truth is, Many of us call ourselves Christians yet we are nothing like Christ by way of actions and motives. If you are not becoming increasingly like the Lord Jesus Christ in your mind, will, thoughts, mindsets, emotions, actions, conduct or character in spite of you constantly reading, studying, hearing and meditating on God’s Word; then you certainly have a veil on your mind that is preventing you from seeing clearly the Lord Jesus Christ as He is.
It is so because you are not seeing Him as He is, with an unveiled face.
How then do you get the veil taken away from your mind?
It is turning humbly, completely, or wholeheartedly to the Lord Jesus in faith that takes away the veil. Unless you approach God’s Word as a little child with eagerness and meekness to learn, trust and obey God’s Word, the veil will remain on your mind.
Beloved, it is turning wholeheartedly to the Holy Spirit and trusting Him completely to explain, expound, or interpret God’s Word to you that will get rid of the veils on your mind. However, if you continue to approach God’s Word as the wise and prudent, you will continue to behold the Lord’s glory in His Word with a veiled mind, and that is unprofitable to you.
God only reveals His Word to those who approach His Word with eagerness, meekness, humility and faith to learn, to receive and obey what God’s Word teaches and commands(like a child).
Therefore, begin to approach God’s Word today with a child-like attitude, trusting the divine author of the Scripture, the Holy Spirit, to give you spiritual understanding and revelation knowledge of His Word.
My dear Lord, I humbly and wholeheartedly turn to You today to take away every veil on my mind that I may see Christ as He is, and be progressively transformed into His likeness, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
