|Good morning everyone,|
Our theme for this month: “How to inhabit time”
Our Bible verse for today: “After he came out, he (Moses) would tell the Israelites what he had been commanded, and the Israelites would see that Moses’s face was radiant.” Exodus 34:34-35 (CSB)
Our thought for today: “Can they see it in your face?”
Our premise this month has been that if we learn how to inhabit time, that is, if we learn how to properly use our time and how to think rightly about the time God has gifted us with, our lives will be deeper, richer, fuller, and much more satisfying. An important part of that discussion has revolved around sabbath-keeping. As we have learned, God commanded that His people observe a sabbath day for the dual purposes of resting and worshipping. And we have learned that when we do so, it helps to restore healthy balance to our lives.
I love the scene found in Exodus chapter thirty-four where we read of Moses going into the tent of meeting to spend time with the Lord. When he comes out from the presence of the Lord his face is radiant and glowing. The people could see that Moses had been with God. The experience of it literally radiated out of him. Moses then told the people what God said to him.
Today is Monday, yesterday was Sunday. Did you gather with your church family for worship and fellowship? Was it good? Did you encounter God and did you walk away from the worship, the fellowship, and the time with God, refreshed, renewed, and spiritually rejuvenated? And does it show?
If your church is healthy and if your own heart is right, then your time in “the tent of meeting” (your church), should leave you glowing and radiant, and it should carry over into the rest of the week.
It was obvious to everyone that Moses had been with God, and he was eager to tell them about it. Hopefully the same is true of us. When you go to the tent of meeting you will experience God. Soak in every minute of it, enjoy it, let it impact you deeply, then, like Moses, go share your experience with others. They should be able to see it in your face and hear it in your words, and you should be different because you were with God.
