It is very hard for people who have busy lives to put aside less important things and give time to the most important. Mary did that as she “sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to His teaching” (Luke 10:39). Cooking and dishes could wait until later. She seized an opportunity that might not come again. Moses was given the opportunity to ask God for what he wanted as he was on the mountain alone with Him. “Moses said, “Please show me your glory”” (Exodus 33:18). He also asked, “Let the favor [beauty] of the Lord our God be upon us” (Psalm 90:17).
Transformation never takes place when we are preoccupied with the busyness of life. David was passionate about “One thing…I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple” (Psalm 27:4). WHAT ARE YOU SEEKING?
Most of us fail to realize the privilege we have in this day of the Spirit. Moses and David had to ask for just a short glimpse of God’s glory. Mary knew that her opportunities to sit at Jesus’ feet were very few. Paul makes it very clear that we are not like Moses who had to wear a veil after only forty days on Mount Sinai. Neither are we like David or Mary who captured what they could.
“And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.” (2 Corinthians 3:18). We have access to this glory anytime and anywhere! Why then is there not more evidence of transformation? It’s open to “all”! The problem is that we are not “beholding the glory of the Lord” because HIS GLORY IS NOT OUR PRIORITY! Without this priority, there can never be change.
