“When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tablets of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God.” 33:29
Moses and God have an intimate relationship, speaking to each other like two friends. The Lord’s power and holiness reflects off Moses’ face like a sunburn, so powerful is the residue that he has to cover his face.
What things in your life reflect your relationship with God?
How can people tell you spend time with him? That you know him, and converse with him like a good friend?
We can’t rely church bumper stickers, bracelets, tee shirts or social media to reflect our relationship with God. It should be radiating off our faces. His love, his grace and his holiness.
These are such great chapters with so many important moments! I especially loved 33:12-23 when Moses intercedes for Israel. What part did you like?
