“Face Of Glory” By Kirk Hunt
And whenever the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone, then Moses would put the veil on his face again, until he went in to speak with Him.
Exodus 34:38 NKJV
Please also read Exodus 34:29–35
Moses came out to the people and they retreated in panic and fear. The face of their Lawgiver glowed with an unworldly light. Moses’ time with God literally changed how the followers saw and reacted to their leader.
God’s people, especially pastors and leaders, should consider their approach to others. How you preach, teach or minister should be done to meet your audience where they are. Moses did not change his message, but he did help Israel to hear what God spoke. He just had to shade the light of his face some (or a lot).
Do not get me wrong; I would that every saint of God, fresh from prayer, had a shiny face. Still, our purpose is to build His Kingdom. What does not make the message effective in reaching and changing hearts is a distraction. Our job is not done until their faces are also bright with His glory
Your audience likely comes in fresh from the streets, rather than the prayer closet. Meet them where they are, but help them get to where you are. And where you are should reflect the glory of God.
Think: Does my ministry reflect God’s glory? Is it effective in reaching my audience?
Pray: “Lord, help me to reflect the glory of Your Face .”
