A GREATER GLORY
II Corinthians 3:7-8 NKJV “But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious?”
There are levels of glory. It’s easy to think that because the face of Moses shined, that he had a great glory upon him, but that’s not true! Our faces may not be shining “physically” but our spirits are! There’s glory in us! Jesus had great glory in Him but they didn’t know until He was transfigured before Peter, James and John. When the devil looks at us, he sees the glory! Hallelujah!
Look at how the glory upon Moses was described, “a glory that was passing away”. It was a glory from the ministry of condemnation; but today, we are able ministers of the New Testament, a ministry of life! What was upon Moses was nothing at all compared to what’s in us! Hallelujah!
II Corinthians 3:9-11 says, “For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory. For even what was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels. For if what is passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious.”
