November 21– Exodus 34:29-35

November 21– Exodus 34:29-35

29 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. 30 Aaron and all the people of Israel saw Moses, and behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him. 31 But Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the leaders of the congregation returned to him, and Moses talked with them. 32 Afterward all the people of Israel came near, and he commanded them all that the Lord had spoken with him in Mount Sinai. 33 And when Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil over his face.

34 Whenever Moses went in before the Lord to speak with him, he would remove the veil, until he came out. And when he came out and told the people of Israel what he was commanded, 35 the people of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face was shining. And Moses would put the veil over his face again, until he went in to speak with him.

I know we don’t see shining faces today when we speak with God. He had a very special relationship with Moses and Moses, in turn, had a very great responsibility to God’s people.

May we realize, even though our faces do not shine, that we, too, have a very great responsibility.

When is the last time you told someone of the love of Christ and how Christ desperately wants a relationship with all of us? Ask God to provide an opportunity for you to bear such witness.

Heavenly Father, although my face might not literally shine when I have spent time with You, I hope my life shines for You.  I know each and every time I am with You, I am changed.  May I take each moment I spend with You to grow more like Jesus, and shine for You in the world in a bigger and better way, so that others may come to know You through my life.  It isn’t about me and anything I do.  May I grow to be less like me and more like You every single day.

In Jesus’ name.
