Reflection: I always think it is interesting when we read a New Testament passage and it references something from Old Testament days. This is the case today, as we are reminded of yesterday’s story of Moses having to cover his face.
Paul tells us that once and for all, because of Jesus, we don’t have to cover our face. We can see God in our everyday lives, with the Spirit’s help. God’s light shines in our lives.
Our readings for this week remind us of transformation that happens when God is a part of our lives. We don’t have to hide from God; we just have to let the light shine! --Chad Hershberger
