Now it was so, when Moses came down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the Testimony were in Moses’ hand when he came down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone while he talked with Him. So when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him. Exodus 34:29-30
Moses spent so much time with the Lord God that his face was shining.
He covered it up as to not frighten the people. The glow slowly faded over time.
Paul referenced this in writing to the Corinthians: Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech— unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 2 Corinthians 3:12-16
The Old Testament is a veil and the New Testament lifts it off.
Trying to do good works, follow rules and regulations to gain salvation is a veil. Accepting Jesus as Savior removes the veil.
The removed veil allows the new believer to “glow” in the Light of Christ.
Today let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16
Let your glow show!
