To Be So Abashed

When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the LORD. – Exodus 34:29.

“Father, glorify Your name.” Then a voice came from heaven, saying, “I have both glorified it and will glorify it again.” – John 12:28.

Congress voted the Marquis de Lafayette land and $200,000 for his service in the Revolution. They voted nothing for Thomas Jefferson after his retirement from public office, despite his service as ambassador to France, vice president, and president. Jefferson, who carefully managed the nation’s finances as president, as badly mismanaged his private affairs. He finally became so impoverished that he authorized a lottery for the sale of his land, hoping to raise enough money to support his daughter and her family after his death. In applying for the lottery he suffered the humiliation of having to enumerate his services to the nation.

When Jesus died on the cross he took upon himself our sickness and disease, our blindness and lameness, our leprosy, death, and our sins. His sacrifice has been recognized and rewarded by God and humanity!
