Transfer by Touch
Moses had a lot of nerve. If God showed His face, Moses knew he would die, but he didn't care. He wanted to see God. He REALLY wanted to see Him.
And God showed Himself.
God shows Himself to us, too.
We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only, who came from the Father full of grace and truth--John 1:14
Sometimes, I lose sight of God's plan. He wants us to see Him. He wants to transfer His glory to us, to make our face glow with His splendor. Moses asked for it and got it. Why don't we?
Like God's relationship with Moses, our relationship with Christ is one of gradually assuming His glory. Moses knew this. God Himself tells us that He wants this for us.
Father, I want those you have given Me to be where I am and to see My glory, the glory you gave me because you loved me before the creation of the world.--John 17:24.
We, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory...--2Cor 3:18
Christ intended that we share the same glory He got from His Father and He knows how to transfer it. He passes it on by touch. We share God's glory by proximity to Christ. He wants to make us glow with it. He wants to give us a beautiful piece of Him, His reflection, His likeness.
God is love, but He looks like glory.
