Greater glory

For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.” (2 Corinthians 3:9)

a) Imputed righteousness by faith produces true practical righteousness – Christ-likeness. And this glory of the Son of God exceeds all others.

b) God never changes in nature. Because of the Cross He does not condemn the one who truly repents and believes. The “no condemnation” of the New Covenant does not mean God has become softer or more lenient toward sin, or is prepared to bend the rules for folks.
