Jesus ascended to heaven before the eyes of the disciples. Acts 1:10 says, “And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up…” In verse 11 they were asked, “…Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven?…”
2 Corinthians 3:18 says, “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord…” A humble heart is open and unveiled. There is an acknowledgment of our finiteness, in the Presence of One who is Infinite.
Here are two verses from a new song: I lift my unveiled face to gaze into Your face. Face to face I behold You as You behold me. No veil separates us. No fear of being known. We have intimate communion. Our hearts are knit as one.
I stand O Lord in Your presence unashamed. All guilt is washed away. All condemnation is cleansed. Through the blood. Through the shed blood of Jesus.
