A New Way

2 Corinthians 3:9-11 (NLT)
If the old way, which brings condemnation, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new way, which makes us right with God! ...

- Obviously, Paul is a big fan of God's new covenant of life-giving grace!

2 Corinthians 3:18 (NLT)
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.

- I like that we merely reflect God's glory, rather than our own. I also like that the action belongs to God as he "'makes' us more and more like him"

The New Covenant gives life because it is God's work in us and not our own.
