Today we think about how and where God is involved in our lives. Is he only interested in the ’spiritual’ things? And how does he start to transform us to be truly alive?
Today Dave looks at a passage that connects creation, Moses receiving the law, Jesus explaining the ‘basics’ to a Pharisee and us doing work emails and cleaning the house!
Whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 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 3:16-18
