Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 3:17

3:17 Now the Lord - Christ is that Spirit of the law whereof I speak, to which the letter was intended to lead. And where the Spirit of the Lord, Christ, is, there is liberty - Not the veil, the emblem of slavery. There is liberty from servile fear, liberty from the guilt and from the power of sin, liberty to behold with open face the glory of the Lord.

Tim George's comment on 2014-08-21 04:50:19:

Now the Lord is that Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. The letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. We have this ministry by the grace of God, as the Spirit is over flowing in our lives, we have liberty in Christ. For Christ is the end of the law, to everyone who believes unto righteousness. So it is Christ who sets us free from the bondage of the law, because He fulfilled the law. We are therefore complete in Him, and being changed from glory to glory, by the Spirit of the living God.
