We are not like Moses. His face was shining, but he covered it to keep the people of Israel from seeing the brightness fade away. The people were stubborn, and something still keeps them from seeing the truth when the Law is read. Only Christ can take away the covering that keeps them from seeing. When the Law of Moses is read, they have their minds covered over with a covering that is removed only for those who turn to the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:13-16
When you turn your mind to the Bible, but do not turn your heart to Jesus, you will find that your mind is covered with a veil that will keep you from understanding what you read! The truth of God's Word is for those who love Him and seek to know Him.
If you were to find a stack of "love letters" written with the greatest tenderness, but those love letters were not written to you, they would certainly be interesting, but not "life changing." But if you were to find that same stack of letters and they were addressed to you what a difference that could make in your life!
For you is the Bible a history book or a love letter? If it is a history book, you may believe everything in it, but not have your life changed at all. If the Bible to you is a love letter, every Word is life altering in some significant way! If my heart is turned to Jesus then the Bible is "God speaking to me!"
"Lord Jesus, help me today to see Your Word as a love letter and not a book of history! Touch my heart with Yours today and every day. And may You be praised forever. Amen."
