Fashions fade. Moments pass. Events end. Moses hid behind a veil as he represented what God did and wants to do. The law cannot reveal the heart of the Law-Giver; it sucks the life out of even well intentioned followers. Have you seen the permanent light in the face of our living Lord?
“The Government of Death, its constitution chiseled on stone tablets, had a dazzling inaugural. Moses’ face as he delivered the tablets was so bright that day (even though it would fade soon enough) that the people of Israel could no more look right at him than stare into the sun. How much more dazzling, then, the Government of Living Spirit?”
