Presence – Unveiled Glory

We long to be free from pretending to be someone we’re not and putting forth an image to those we meet. These defenses and fronts are like a veil such as what Moses wore and like the tabernacle and temple would later have to keep people from the glory of God. Yet it is through beholding the face of Jesus that the image of God is restored in us and all things become clear. No more anxiety about what we need to do because we know who we are and Whose we are. We’re no longer ashamed of what we’ve done because we grasp the forgiveness of sins. We don’t try to hide our brokenness any more because we see the Healer for who he is. Glory unveiled brings transparency which allows the light of Christ to shine through.  “Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom.”

Presence – I AMnesia

We forget the things about God that we need to remember and we remember the things in our lives that we need to forget.  Like Moses, we have I AMnesia.  If we can recapture the image of God, that image can be restored in us.  But how do we get there?  Moses got there by asking.  Show me Your glory.  We recover from our I AMnesia by entering into the presence of God.

It

The presence of God. What is it? Where can it be found? How can we get it? In Exodus 33-34 God reveals his presence and Moses realizes he can’t live without it. Today some people have “it” and some people don’t. Some churches strive for and pray for “it” and some don’t. Do you have it? Did you lose it? Do you want it back?
