2 Corinthians 3:17-18

2 Corinthians 3:17-18 – Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

We all have something in our life that has held us back, whether it is fear, sin, or just lack of confidence. Whatever it is we all desire to be free from it. We desire to be able to serve God with no hindrances. In the Spirit we can have that freedom, and as long as we have accepted Christ we already have the Spirit.
Just because we have the Spirit doesn't mean we are free, though. The freedom is there, waiting for us, but we have to receive it. It is time for us to let go of everything and give it all to Christ. He has set us free and it is up to us to take hold of that freedom. As we do we will see our lives transform. Maybe not all at once, but it will happen.
We were created in the image and glory of God, and as we serve Him we reflect His glory to those around us. This becomes more evident in our lives as we let the Spirit take over and do His work in us. Then, as the Spirit works in us we will see our lives begin to look more like Christ’s. He was and is our example. Jesus life was a reflection of the Father and we also, ought to reflect God in all we do.
So whatever the obstacle; whatever has been holding you back, let go in Jesus name and live in the freedom of the Spirit. Let the Spirit transform you back into the image and glory of God. Then live your life to reflect His glory as you give Him all the glory for all you do. It is not yours and you are nothing without Him, but through Him we can do all things. I pray that you live every moment of your life for Him as you continually give Him the glory.
