Praying with Paul: 'A Dispensation of Glory'

Wednesday, May 25, 2022

2 Corinthians 3:7-16

Dear Father,

What a glorious splendor Christ's gospel has! It is a dispensation of glory! And why shouldn't the dispensation of the Spirit be attended with greater splendor than that of the letter! How much more splendid than the temporary glory of Moses is the permanent, new covenant, the dispensation of righteousness through faith by your grace!

I am so full of hope because of what you have done! I have such boldness!

For in Christ the veil of secrecy and misunderstanding is taken away. What you were intending in the Old Covenant becomes clear, for your Holy Spirit reveals the Lord Jesus Christ as the hidden meaning in it all. Christ the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

In the name of Jesus and because it is his will, I pray. Amen.
