The most amazing gift of all is sight. Grace empowers us to say, “I was blind, but now I see.” Seeing what held us in bondage is key to seeing the glorious hope we have received.

“With that kind of hope to excite us, nothing holds us back. Unlike Moses, we have nothing to hide. Everything is out in the open with us. He wore a veil so the children of Israel wouldn’t notice that the glory was fading away—and they didn’t notice. They didn’t notice it then and they don’t notice it now, don’t notice that there’s nothing left behind that veil. Even today when the proclamations of that old, bankrupt government are read out, they can’t see through it. Only Christ can get rid of the veil so they can see for themselves that there’s nothing there.”

2 Corinthians 3:12-15 MSG
