A Touch of Freedom: The Comforting Power of 2 Corinthians 3:17

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”2 Corinthians 3:17

Hey there, it’s Elaine here.

Ever found a Bible verse that leaps out at you? For me, that’s “Where The Spirit Of The Lord Is There Is Freedom” from 2 Corinthians 3:17. In the whirlwind of COVID-19, it became my lifeline, a beacon of freedom in a year that felt anything but. It was like a promise of God’s constant love, a hope inked onto the pages of my Bible.

Being the founder of GodlyBible, I knew I wanted to share it. So let’s dive in – here’s how this verse became my homebound companion and the perfect adornment to my Bible cover.

Unlocking Enduring Freedom: A Deeper Dive into the Verse

2 Corinthians 3:17 says, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” Simple words, but man, how it spoke to the core of me in those tough moments. Think about it.

We’ve all been faced with situations where we felt trapped, desperate, and utterly helpless — I know I was when COVID hit. Suddenly, the entire world felt like it was closing in on me.

But then this verse comes along. It speaks about freedom that’s not contingent on our circumstances or our feelings. It’s about a boundless kind of liberty that comes when the Spirit of the Lord is present. It doesn’t promise a problem-free life, but it does offer us assurance that even in our worst circumstances, freedom and peace are possible.

Kind of like a surprise chocolate chip in a cookie you thought was plain vanilla, right? You might think that this verse is reserved for pastors, theologians, or anyone who’s got their life together. But trust me, I’m not any of those things. I’m just someone like you, and this verse has been a light in my darkest times.

It’s universal, no matter who you are or what you’re going through. It stands to remind us all of the freedom that God has for us.

A Cover of Comfort: The Significance of Featuring the Verse on Our Bible Cover

Why not carry around this promise with us, literally? I’m not suggesting you get a tattoo, though if that’s your thing, why not? I’m talking about something a bit more…handy. Like our Bible covers. I mean, we do carry our Bibles around a lot. Sunday church, Bible studies, quiet moments in the morning sipping our coffees…and each time we do, imagine also carrying around this promise, this assurance of freedom.

That’s why I got this verse on my Bible cover. Whenever I look at it, I’m reminded of this freedom God promises. It’s not just a decoration; it’s got truth and soul wrapped into it.

And whenever I open my Bible, I’m greeted by the grace of this verse. It’s perfect for when I’m sitting with my Bible in my lap, trying to squeeze in some quiet time between running a business, and appreciating how this verse saved me during the lockdown.

Ever thought about doing the same? Your favorite verse, or maybe 2 Corinthians 3:17, on your Bible cover? The benefits are endless.

You’ll always have a reminder of His Word physically close to you. A quick pick-me-up in times both good and bad. And think about when your kids or grandkids see it and ask you about it. Aren’t those teachable moments the best?

Talk about wearing your heart on your sleeve, only in this case, it’s on your Bible cover. So how about it? Would you like to wear your faith, or wear His promises, through a GodlyBible’s cover? I hope my experience has shown you the power it can have. Because in times like these, we could all do with a little reminder of the freedom we have in Him.
