I saw the Lord today, a poem

I saw the Lord today, in His glory, my heart did sway.

His eyes were shining and Him I did adore, He is altogether lovely,

Every day, I love Him more and more.

Then I realized, in a mirror I did see, it was His image I saw in me.

If you want to see Jesus today, look at those who follow the way.

They are all in one accord; their hearts do follow the Lord.

They deny themselves, not counting the cost.

They are walking with the Lord, the way of the Cross.

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit (2-Corinthians 3:18 NASB)

After Moses came down from the mountain of God with the Commandments written on stone tablets. He had to wear a veil because the glory from the Lord on his face was fading. How beautiful the Lord revealed that the New Testament believers would have that glory that would not fade away. (The Law as Paul wrote, was a schoolmaster to lead you to Christ. It cannot save you, but it will reveal how far away you are from God with your sins. No one can keep the Law, only Jesus the God man did). For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ (John 1:17 NLT).
