out from under the covers
daylight savings has thrown me for a loop but, I am talking about something way different. I need to get this out. this verse has been haunting me (in a good way) since friday night. it needs a bit of set-up though.
lifepoint is gearing up for a series entitled, the real “F” word. we are praying for BIG GOD STUFF to happen. there are many disconnected people in our community who feel that the church is irrelevant, much less a God who understands and loves them….so this is my prayer, that God would move them ‘out from under the covers’ and show them just how real he is.
from the message:
2 cor. 3:18
whenever, though, they turn to face God as Moses did, God removes the veil and there they are—face-to-face! they suddenly recognize that God is a living, personal presence, not a piece of chiseled stone. and when God is personally present, a living Spirit, that old, constricting legislation is recognized as obsolete. we’re free of it! all of us! nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of his face. and so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.
