The Glory of the Lord

When Moses would come down from Mount Sinai after being in the presence of God, “the skin of his face shone, and [the Israelites] were afraid to come near him” (Exodus 34:30). As a result of this fear, Moses would place a veil on his face when he finished speaking with the people following each visit to God’s presence” (Exodus 34:33-35)

Today, “when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away” and there is perfect liberty through His indwelling Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:16-17). When the veil is lifted, God’s glory becomes visible to those around you “as in a mirror [of] the glory of the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:18). Furthermore, this unveiling by the Spirit’s work in us manifests “the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ” to “those who are perishing” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).  This passage revives the simple, but powerful, song we learned as children, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine….”.
