Message Behind The Music
by Moriah Peters
As we seek to follow Christ, there is always conflict between the world’s standard of righteousness and God’s standard. The world says to pursue performance-based perfection, we too can do the same as we read scriptures, pray daily, fast with church groups and serve in an organized ministry. But with all our works, we can lose our purpose, passion and motivation, and this produces a rigid and exhausting relationship with our Father. He offers us the beautiful gift of divine relationship; sometimes we try to earn it and in the process, we blur our own vision of God.
I want to unveil my face and be transformed, like Paul talks about in 2 Corinthians 3:18 (ESV) and the only thing that can
help me see clearly is “…the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Cor. 4:4).
We are the bride, He is the bridegroom. When we enter into relationship, Christ lifts our veil and we see, without any obstruction, the face of unconditional love. Let us never again put on the veil of pride or shame in what we’ve accomplished or destroyed, let us never separate ourselves by any attempts to earn His affection. Let us embrace the simplicity of what we’re called to do…rest at the foot of the cross and reflect His glory!
