The God Face 3
The God FaceWith our masks removed, our misshapen and rotting faces are exposed to God’s healing light. The healing feels good, but the light is just too bright. The Spirit starts a fire inside us and our undeveloped spiritual muscles tremble in the presence of God. Having the spirit upon us is like being underwater, except we feel on fire. Sooner or later we have to come out of it. What lasts and what remains from this first face to face? Do our faces shine like Moses’ for all to see the glory of God’s healing in us or do we begin to construct a new mask titled “The God Healed” to hide the remaining areas in need of healing. Do we try to construct a mask or a series of masks for God so that next time he won’t shine as brightly or fiercely?
