“I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God. Ex 3:6

How many depictions of Baby Jesus' face have you gazed into this Christmas? Did you feel anything of the holy hush? or the wonder of the wisemen?

Moses knew God's presence better than anyone but when he first encountered God he "hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God."

What about us? are we afraid to look at God?

I find it interesting that by the time Moses returns to the 'mountain of God' in Exodus 33 he is boldly praying to see God's glory.
So the Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.” And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.”
This man who was hiding with his father-in-laws sheep in Ex 3 is the same man who, "By faith he left Egypt, with no fear of the king's anger; for he was resolute, as one who saw the invisible God." (Heb 11:27)

Moses' life changed when he encountered the living God.

What about us? have we encountered the living God?

We're not afraid to look into the face of baby Jesus. But does the truth of Who He IS then take us to the reverent fear, the awareness of our sin that causes us to hide our face? Does it bring us, by faith, to an encounter with the invisible God and to our knees in worship?

Or do we leave Him lying in the manger?
