2 Cor 3:7-11

Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses’ face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end, will not the ministry of the Spirit have even more glory? For if there was glory in the ministry of condemnation, the ministry of righteousness must far exceed it in glory.10 Indeed, in this case, what once had glory has come to have no glory at all, because of the glory that surpasses it. 11 For if what was being brought to an end came with glory, much more will what is permanent have glory.

  1. God had different distinct plans in the law and in Christ/grace. The law condemned, showed our sin, and showed the need for a savior. In this plan and in the law and commands of God there was great glory because sin revealed the perfection and holiness of God.

    There is more glory in His display and plan of grace. Our sin is still are evidence, but the ability of His Son to cover that sin and darkness with His blood and to redeem us is all the more evidence.
