That Beautiful Glow

“When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the Testimony in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the LORD.” Exodus 34:29.

How many times have we heard people talk about the beautiful glow of a pregnant woman as she carries precious cargo within her? She values the growing life, takes care of her body, and centers her thoughts on what is best for the indwelling.

Once a Christian really begins doing the same, we will also experience a radiance of Christ that is apparent to everyone with whom we come in contact. It is not enough to speak of being a Christian and living a Christ-centered life. We should not have to tell anyone that we belong to Him, but through our actions and radiance should it be evident to all. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21.

Our hearts are transparent to God and He knows when we are living the Christian life out of dedication and love to Him or less holy motivations. “Appearing to be holy has no kingdom value.” Priscilla Shirer, He Speaks To Me, p. 43.

When our hearts are aligned with the Spirit of Christ within our focus, we will also have a radiant glow which others will see.
