When I read 2 Corinthians 3 this morning it reminded me of a chapter from the best book I’ve read in the last year or two. The chapter talked about how Moses would come down from meeting with God glowing from being in His presence. And everyone would be like, “Oooohhh, look at glowey boy. He’s so godly.” Then the next day Moses would put a veil on his face and the people would think, “That’s so nice, he doesn’t want to blind us with his gloweyness.” But the truth (we learn in 2 Cor 3) was that Moses didn’t want people to know the gloweyness had faded.

The author of the book said he was in no place to criticize Moses, but why not just be honest about your level of gloweyness. And, even better, if you know what makes you glow is spending face-to-face time with God, and the glow starts to fade, why not get your face in front of God’s again? Why not make sure you stay glowey?

Now today we might feel like, “Man, Moses got to go face-to-face with God. He was so lucky.” But we learn in 2 Corinthians 3 that we are the lucky ones, because having the Holy Spirit is even more glorious. So we have even more ability to glow.

The questions for you is: How do you get your face in front of God’s? What makes you glow? And have you done that today? And if not, why not? And what’s stopping you from going and doing it now?

P.S. The best book thing is a joke people.
