THAT GLOWING MOSES

THAT GLOWING MOSES*

(2nd Corinthians 3:1-4:6)

Moses couldn’t show

The folks his facial glow…

Intimacy

With Divinity

Is not life’s normal flow.

He had to use a veil

Over face or people’d sail…

Away in fright

From the Light

And the introspection entailed.

Whenever Moses is read,

Oft-times understanding is dead…

Christians too

Have minds unglued

When God tries to move their heads!

Unlike Moses’ outward glow,

Our’s is inside, don’t you know…

When the Spirit prevails

We remove our veils

And go where God’s Spirit goes.

–Jonathan Caswell

* Glowing Moses is a phrase from the book, TRANSFORMING PRAYER…How Everything Changes When You Seek God’s Face…by Daniel Henderson, Chapter 5;  2001, Bethany House.
