The Face of Christ JesusAug 28, 2021
I have a new favorite verse.
God has shone in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the Face of Christ Jesus. (2 Corinthians 4:6b)
The Face of Jesus. His presence. His intimacy. Getting to know Him more--and reveling in the joy of knowing He knows us intimately, and delights in us (Psalm 139).
I have dedicated my entire life to getting to embrace the Face of Jesus daily. I want to see Him--His hands at work, His heart for us, His smile of pride and joy, and the fellowship of His suffering, too. (Phil 3:10, my other fave).
And Paul, in this verse that has become my new best friend, tells us about the light and the knowledge and the glory of God--found in Christ Jesus. Light and knowledge and glory are quests in and of themselves, as we will see over the next few days, but they are steps along the way. The destination--the end goal--is the Face of Christ Jesus.
Heaven is all about that. Intimacy with Jesus.
