shining face of God

Wednesday February 18th,  2 Corinthians 4:  5 Remember, our Message is not about ourselves; we're proclaiming Jesus Christ, the Master. All we are is messengers, errand runners from Jesus for you. 6 It started when God said, "Light up the darkness!" and our lives filled up with light as we saw and understood God in the face of Christ, all bright and beautiful.  That’s it!  All those stories about how humanity interfaced with God, even if they didn’t do a very good job some of the time.  All those stories from the Hebrew scripture were trying to tell us something besides just the cool sounding miracles and battles and stuff.  They were trying to tell us that God is a God of love, and we are called to love God and to love one another.  When the light first came to earth, we were created for just that, love.  When I see the light in the face of Christ, I began to understand.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind and love you neighbor as yourself is why we were created.  It’s all in Jesus’ face.  Can you see it? Can you see the face of God? Can you see the face of your brothers and sisters? Can you see the face of your enemy?  If not, look again, if you still can’t, you might want to spend some time in the dark and quiet, letting your eyes, ears and heart recover from all the noise your life has been filled with and tune in once again to the love of God and then look.  Ahhhhhhhh! The shining face of God is everywhere!!!
