The Missing Veil
I've been reading 2 Corinthians in my devotions recently, and spending a fair bit of time in chapter 3, where Paul famously says that "when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed" (3:16). So it was beautiful to read Jackie Hill Perry's description of what happened when she arrived at work the day after being converted. Many of us have had similar experiences, I suspect, but we may not have expressed it quite like this:
I arrived at work the next day, a new creature. Though my soul was much different, my clothes were the same ... My best friend and co-worker Mike looked at me and said, “You look different.”
“What do you mean?” I said …
“I don’t know, man. You just look brighter.”
Maybe he noticed that the veil had been removed but didn’t know what to call it.
