How many of you have ever been really happy and excited before?
When was the time that you were the most happy and excited?
Show me how you looked when you were the most happy and excited.
Oh, wow, your faces just lit up with those great smiles.
There was a time when Moses' face lit up, too, even more than yours did.
(Read Exodus 34:39, or summarize it.)
The Bible tells us that Moses' face was shining because he had been talking to God. Do you think Moses would have been happy and excited to be talking to God? (Yes.)
Getting to talk to God is the best thing ever. And we can all talk to God every day, can't we? We can talk to God by praying and reading our Bible and coming to church. When we do those things, we can talk to God, and God can talk to us in our hearts.
Now when Moses talked with God, his face was changed. He got all shiny. And when we talk to God, something about us changes us too. When we talk to God, we get happier and we start to love God more and we keep wanting to do the things that are right and make God happy.
Let's pray about that.
Sample prayer: God, we thank You for speaking to us just like You talked with Moses. We pray that You will help us to be happy and excited to keep talking to You and we pray that You will change our hearts so that we will live for You the best that we can. Amen.
