THE GREAT COMMUNICATOR

 
"So Moses stayed there with the Lord for forty days and forty nights." —Exodus 34:28
 

Moses would meet God at a certain tent, and "the column of cloud would come down and stand at its entrance while the Lord spoke with Moses...the Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, as one man speaks to another" (Ex 33:9, 11).

Many Christians today would like to trade places with Moses because he had such direct communication with the Lord. But Moses would have liked to trade places with us because in the new covenant we have much greater opportunities for communication with the Lord. "The least born into the kingdom of God is greater than" Moses and all the leaders in the old covenant (Mt 11:11). "Indeed, when you compare that limited glory" (before Christ) "with this surpassing glory" (after Christ), "the former should be declared no glory at all" (2 Cor 3:10). "In times past, God spoke in fragmentary and varied ways to our fathers through the prophets; in this, the final age, He has spoken to us through His Son" (Heb 1:1-2).

God has become man, the Spirit inhabits us as His temple, the Triune God dwells within us, and we even receive the Body and Blood of Jesus. There's no excuse for not being closer than close with the Father through the Son and in the Spirit. Let's repent, give the Lord prime time each day, and make our relationship with Him our highest priority.

 
Prayer: Father, I want to communicate with You every second of my life.
Promise: "Then the saints will shine like the sun in their Father's kingdom." —Mt 13:43
Praise: The brakes on Janice's car gave out while she was driving home from doing God's work for a Catholic ministry. Jesus protected her by allowing this to happen within a block of her home, after she had exited the busy streets.
