Exodus 34:29 – Face Shone

Today’s Readings: Ex 34:1‐35:9, Matt 27:15‐31, Ps 33:12‐22, Prov 9:1‐6

Exodus 34:29 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.

I have met several Moseses in my life. Every once in a while, I cross paths with a person that knows God intimately and their face shows it. Maybe it is a different kind of glow than Moses’. This story seems to describe a visible light. But, Moses covers his face to hide that light. We are to “let our light shine (Mat 5)” and with “unveiled face (2 Cor 3)” show the Lord in us.

This last week, one of my friends and coworkers told me – “your face is a ministry.” I believe that. I want my countenance to reflect Christ. I want my inward joy to be seen outwardly.

Have you been impacted by the countenance of another person?
