Our Goal

All I have is yours, and all you have is mine.  And my glory is shown through them.  John 17:10

God is in the business of changing the face of the world.

Let me be very clear.  This change is his job, not ours.  Ou goal is not to make our faces radiant.  Not even Jesus did that.  Matthew says, “Jesus’ appearance was changed” not “Jesus changed his appearance.”  Moses didn’t even know his face was shining (Exodus 34:29).  Our goal is not to conjure up some fake, frozen expression.  Our goal is simply to stand before God with a prepared and willing heart and then let God do his work.

And he does.  He wipes away the tears.  He mops away the perspiration.  He softens our furrowed brows.  He touches our cheeks.  He changes our faces as we worship.
