After Moses met with God, his face was shining… I’d imagine that is was not like a sunburn, but like the sun itself…
But maybe the sun itself is a reach, illustration wide… too much…
perhaps it was more like the moon, because the moon reflects the sun… shining brighter than the city lights!
At any rate, here’s the question: When we meet with God, are we leaving that conversation as a bright reflection of him?
May each of us reflect his love and grace in myriad ways.
“Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!” Psalms 139:23-24 ESV
I worshipped our God, the God of creation, from the middle of the Pacific Ocean. On three islands we saw the incredible handiwork of God. From standing and taking in the splendor of his work, I truly gained a fresh understanding of the word ‘awe’.
“By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness, O God of our salvation, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas; the one who by his strength established the mountains, being girded with might; who stills the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, the tumult of the peoples, so that those who dwell at the ends of the earth are in awe at your signs. You make the going out of the morning and the evening to shout for joy.” Psalms 65:5-8
So we must concur with Paul: “For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” Romans 1:20 ESV
When Jesus was “in the Spirit” he glorified the Father…
May we glorify the Father!
Abiding with the Father as I travel with my bride of 40years.
