Nor do the trials of life spare the Christian who is called to be transformed by adversity. They are part of God's pedagogy and oblige one to depend on his grace.
In the face of the dispute in Corinth, Paul's confidence and ability come from God. Even gloriously, the law kills. Only the new covenant in hearts can save... Provided that we remove the veil from the heart and enter into the freedom of the Spirit of the Lord.
Christ in the House of Martha and Mary, an episode of Luke 10, painted by Diego Velasquez, 17th century Spanish painter
