unveiling ourselves

"and we who with unvielded faces reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his lifekness with every increasing glory which comes form the Lord who is the spirit" Hebrews 10:35-36

unveiled....being real...the people of Israel couldn't even allow Moses to unveil himself after seeing God. The glory on his face was too much for them. I see that today when we as Christians challenge eachother. We get offended, defensive, angry. I too, am guilty of this.

how are we to be real with eachother, to live in community and love with eachother unless we are real? God made each of us perfect in HIS sight. He made us perfect with amazing gifts for us to use for him! not to give into a lie of the world that says, "you need to be like this," or "change this about yourself so you can do this". LIES. We need to start believing the promises of God over our lives in order to truly walk this journey out the way He wants us to. We can't do it our way. We can't do it without making mistakes. That's why it's so important that we do this together, as a community. Not so we can find out other's faults, use it against them so we can get ahead, and be alone at the top! We share eachother's struggles to gain strength in one another. Not so we are afraid to be judged.

When we are unveiled, we can truly reflect God's glory. We can truly say He is in control. We can then truly be transformed.

Please, so the next time someone challenges you (why do you watch this? why do you say this? why do you do this? aren't you a Christian?) don't get offended. open your heart and mind to His spirit. the thing that directs you into doing what's right, and allow yourself to see the truth behind it all.

You'd be amazed at the glory and rewards you receive from Him.
