Freedom in Christ

Oh how life-giving this paragraph has been to my soul this morning: 

"Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts [they're unable to see the glory of the law of God because of their sin, even if that law is written on the heart and not the page]. BUT when one turns to the Lord [Jesus], the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit" (2 Corinthians 3:15-18). 

Jesus grants us freedom to see, freedom to be, freedom to choose life in him - he grants us true freedom! And this is not because we deserve it, indeed, "this comes from the Lord." It's pure grace. Oh that we would have hearts today to turn from the sin that enslaves us and turn toward the Savior who frees us!
