Sun. Feb. 8, 2009 (Henry Neufeld)

On February 8, 2009, Henry Neufeld cited numerous scriptures referring to God's glory. When Moses insisted that he see God's glory, God relented, hid Moses in a crevice in a rock and let him observe a bit of the glory after passing by. Later, Jews were reportedly unable to look at Moses' face after he had been with God because it still reflected God's glory. The story of the Mount of Transfiguration shows that New Testament writers were also interested in this concept. Fittingly, Revelations has many references to the glory of God. Our hymns, like Handel's "Messiah", often have glory as a major theme. C.S. Lewis even wrote of "the weight of glory". Glory is not something for which we merely wait (heaven), but we can quite possibly see glimpses of God's glory in people, for they are made in God's image. Some time ago, Jake Loewen suggested to our fellowship that the closest we will get to God is through the person sitting next to us. Do we see glimpses of God's glory in each other? How? What would we anticipate seeing? [JEK] Listen to the sermon audio MP3 recording from Sunday Feb. 8th, 2009 using your browser's preferred media player.
