“Glory versus Greater Glory!”
If the ministry that brought condemnation was glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness! For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. And if what was transitory came with glory, how much greater is the glory of that which lasts! 2 Corinthians 3:9-11
The Apostle Paul was informing the Corinthian believers, of the comparison between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant. The Old Covenant came by way of the Commandments, which brought condemnation upon mankind, if you broke one commandment, you broke them all.
However, the ministry of the New Covenant, came by way of the Spirit of God and leads mankind to a SAVING-KNOWLEDGE or FAITH in Jesus Christ, who suffered and died so that we might be FREED from our sins. The New Covenant brought LIFE, and RIGHTEOUSNESS.
The Old Covenant was glorious, but the New Covenant, which is the ministry and life of Jesus, produced a GREATER GLORY than the Old Covenant, which could not give SALVATION, only CONDEMNATION. The glory of the Old Covenant has faded away in light of the glory of the New Covenant. And so if the Old Covenant, which has faded away, came with GLORY, how much GREATER is the GLORY which came through the New Covenant, which lasts throughout eternity! Thanks be to the Almighty God for the New Covenant, which produces the GREATER GLORY.
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you cannot experience this GREATER GLORY, but you are living under condemnation and facing a SPIRITUAL DEATH that will lead you straight to Hell, the place of perpetual torment, torture, heartache, pain and despair for ALL of eternity. But because of the New Covenant you can be brought into a SAVING-KNOWLEDGE of Jesus Christ and be given the HOPE of Heaven, by coming to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and experience His GREATER GLORY. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
