Are You Living Unveiled?

“But whenever Moses went in before the Lord to speak with Him, he would take the veil off until he came out; and he would come out and speak to the children of Israel whatever he had been commanded. 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 34:34-35


Ponder This

Moses had an encounter with God. The life and presence of God was so real in Moses’ life that his face literally shone. He had to wear a veil over his face when he went out in public. He took the veil off his face when he went in to speak face-to-face with the Lord. The people knew Moses had a message from God because of his shining face.

But the purpose of a veil is not only to hide beauty. Some wear a veil to hide shame. I’m wondering if there are some of you who are wearing veils, not to veil the glory, but maybe to hide the fact that the glory is not there. I wonder if there are not some deacons like that, some Sunday school teachers like that. Maybe for you, there was once a time when God was very real to you, and you still go through the motions, but inwardly you know you’re hiding behind a veil.
