Exodus 34: 33-35
“33 When Moses finished speaking to them, he put a veil over his face. 34 But whenever he entered the Lord’s presence to speak with him, he removed the veil until he came out. And when he came out and told the Israelites what he had been commanded, 35 they saw that his face was radiant. Then Moses would put the veil back over his face until he went in to speak with the Lord.”
The Israelites knew that Moses had been with God when they saw that his face shown with the glory of God’s presence. They knew that what he told them had been told to him by God.
Our radiance, as Christians, is not a glowing face so bright that we have to cover it with a veil. Our radiance is a life lived in imitation of Christ; a life of love; a life of service to others; a life of lifting others up.
When such a person speaks, there is no question that they have been with God.
May the love of Christ be with you,
