Shepherd to Sheep
"the sons of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone. So Moses would replace the veil over his face until he went in to speak with Him."
Just prior, we recall that Moses had just spent forty days and forty nights on the mountaintop with the Lord. We, almost enviably, desire that same experience with the Lord. Sweet communion, fellowship, worship and adoration must have been punctuated with God's precepts and promises and loving instruction. So filled was Moses, that he radiated God's glory, glowing with the overflow of the Spirit. While we may not be able to commit to that long a period of time, our own quiet times become as precious times of refreshment and renewal, as we are filled to overflow in His glory, the fulness of His spiritual blessing for our lives.
Ministry Opportunities - With every new mandate and executive order come more and more opportunities for us to share the love and certainty of Jesus. In our nation and in our own state, we see challenges to personal freedoms and the right to choose being challenged daily. With our liberties being eroded quickly, and the uncertainty of the times, many live in fear and disarray. Self imposed isolation, panic attacks, issues, the attack of the enemy all bring opening to share the love of Christ. Be ready child of God, to give an account for the hope that is in you, with gentleness and reverence.
