By no stretch of the imagination are we Biblical scholars, we are just two girls who love Jesus and have a hunger and a thirst for His Word. Scripture Sunday will be a weekly feature in which we share the ways in which Jesus is speaking to our hearts through His Word.
You know what’s really cool?
When God shows up in such a visible way 😉
Really, y’all, when I went outside to film this video the sky was grey and overcast; the sun could not be found because of all the cloud cover. The lighting was perfect. 😉
But then, as I talk about the glory of the Lord and “unveiled faces”, watch how The Ultimate Lighting Designer uses His light to make His Word shine more clearly.
When I finished filming this video I thought I should do it again, make it better, because I felt I rambled too much, but as soon as I finished raindrops began to fall.
I believe God wants it to stand as is. Pay attention to His lighting design on my face and I think you’ll see why. 😉
And who am I to say that my artistic sensibilities are greater than His?
2 Corinthians 3:7-18
7 Now if the ministry that brought death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with glory, so that the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory, transitory though it was, 8 will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious? 9 If the ministry that brought condemnation was glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness! 10 For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. 11 And if what was transitory came with glory, how much greater is the glory of that which lasts!
12 Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. 13 We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to prevent the Israelites from seeing the end of what was passing away. 14 But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. 15 Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. 16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
29 When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the Lord. 30 When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, his face was radiant, and they were afraid to come near him. 31 But Moses called to them; so Aaron and all the leaders of the community came back to him, and he spoke to them. 32 Afterward all the Israelites came near him, and he gave them all the commands the Lord had given him on Mount Sinai.
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.
