Description of this teaching: Paul called the Ten Commandments the “ministry of death” and the “ministry of condemnation.” Why? Because none of us can live up to the standards of God’s law, and the more we try, the more condemned we will feel. It’s deadly! The Good News is that the glory of the “ministry of the Spirit” and the “ministry of righteousness” in the New Covenant of grace far exceeds the condemnation of the Old Covenant. The veil of condemnation of the law blinds the eyes of unbelievers to the light of the glory of Jesus, but when one turns to Jesus, the veil of condemnation is removed and there is freedom! Under law, people were afraid of the Lord. Under grace, we run to Him. It’s only through His grace that we can see the shining light of His glory and run towards it instead of away from it. Why? Because the “ministry of the Spirit” inside of us declares that we are righteous. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ! And when the veil is removed, we behold Jesus and we are transformed into His image from glory to glory.
