Biblical Anatomy #4 - FACE

SundayBiblicalAnatomy4

Biblical Anatomy #4 - FACE
Today we continue studying in the series called "Biblical Anatomy."

Anatomy - is the study of parts and structures of organisms.

What is "Biblical Anatomy" you might ask?  It is the study of the structure of the Christian Body.  

Today we focus on the FACE:

Face - the front part of the head that in humans extends from the forehead to the chin to the ears.

Face includes the following parts of Biblical Anatomy that we will be studying in future posts:
cheek, ear, eyes, face, forehead, hair, lips, nostrils.  

Our face is so important for communication with others.  Our facial expression can show our intent &/or feelings without ever uttering a word. 

We are going to start with an Old Testament review about Moses.  Remember when he came down from the mountain holding the Ten Commandments but was unaware that his face shone with the Glory of God?   (see verses below):

Isn't it interesting that the phrase "face to face" was used in Deuteronomy 34:10?  Doing anything in person, "face to face", makes things easier to understand and more enjoyable.  (CURRENT DAY NOTE:  I could go into great detail about the unscientific use of masks and I could even show that the use of a mask is a symbol of slavery - masks are pure evil, but I won't get political).

The phrase "face to face" occurs quite often in the New Testament.  Read the verse below and specifically the last line, this is what stands out to me:
- visit you
- talk with you
- face to face
- our joy will be complete
Of course, in Jesus' day, the only other way to communicate was through writing letters.  In my opinion, in today's society we have video phone calls but I feel that nothing can replace in-person face-to-face contact.

Then we learn that we are to "seek God's face", in other words seek God's wisdom, strength and guidance. 

"Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face always.
”  
Psalm 105:4


Saving the best for last - read through the verse below.  
I just love the description!  This is what stands out to me:
- God made his light shine in our hearts
- God gives us the light of knowledge
- God's glory displayed in the face of Christ
Since the Holy Spirit is in us, then that means that Jesus Christ can be glorified through our face.

Let God's light; the glory of Jesus shine through your face this week!

Chocolate Sunflower Variety

September is SUNFLOWER Season on God's Growing Garden.  Every year, during the month of September I feature the sunflower varieties that I grew during the current summer.  This is the second post in the Sunflower Series of 2021 and today I am featuring the CHOCOLATE variety.
Since we are talking about CHOCOLATE - the following post is a compilation of "chocolate" recipes previously posted on this blog 
DecadeChocolate  
This variety really did resemble chocolate but the fascinating and unique detail are the stripes on the back of the petals.  I separated this variety into 3 "chocolate" categories:
Dark Chocolate
Milk Chocolate 
Artisan Chocolate
  
ENJOY the following pictures!

All photos were taken by me (Angie Ouellette-Tower) and the sunflowers were all grown in my garden.
