THE FACE OF GOD

Psalm 11:7 “For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness; the upright will behold His face.”

WE SHALL BEHOLD IT

Can you imagine?  Beholding the very face of God!  God’s Word says we will, if we are named among the righteous. If you are a Christian, if you have asked the Lord Jesus to come into your life and dwell, if you have surrendered your will to His, then you too are called righteous.  Not because of anything you have done – no sir!  You are called righteous solely based on what He has done.

And because He has declared you righteous, you will behold the face of God one day.  What will you do when you see God?  I don’t know about you, but I plan to fall flat on my face and stay that way for about a million years.  Just to be in the presence of God will be overwhelming – much less to see His face. Wow!  I can’t imagine.

TEACHING MOMENT

Ask your little Johnny what he thinks of when he sees you each day.  Ask him what comes to mind when he sees your face after you have been out of town for a couple of days.  His words just may surprise you.  Words like “love” or “joy” or excitement” might be used.

Tell him that as good as it seems to see you each day, one day, as believers in Christ, we will get to see the perfect face.  We will see the holy face.  We will see the pure love face.  As good as your face may look to your child, seeing God’s face will be so much better. They will literally see love and light.

Are you tired of looking at sad faces? Take a minute and catch a vision of God. Imagine looking into His face one day. Imagine something even better. Imagine Him looking into your face with His eyes which will pierce your soul.  I can’t wait.

Oh Lord of eternity, look my way.  Allow me to look on You.  I long to see Your face.
