While Moses was up in the mountain, the people of Israel worshipped a golden calf. God became angry; He refused to go in the midst of Israel into Canaan, and instead decided to send an angel. Moses refused to accept this, and said to God - "if your presence go not with me, carry us not up hence." Then in boldness, Moses said - show me your glory, because Moses was a glory seeker.
Glory seekers refuse to only have an angel with them. There relationship with God is not limited to a relationship with His servants. Sure, they love and respect their pastors, evangelists, and teachers; but they pursue to knowing God intimately. In today's time many Christians get caught up in men, treating ministers like superstars. Instead of looking to God who empowers men, they look to the men being used by God. However, glory seekers are not satisfied with just hearing another word from the man of God. Their satisfaction is in the God of the word.
Moreover, glory seekers are not satisfied with just receiving God's blessings. Their relationship with God is not limited to the miraculous, or to material blessings. They would rather have His glorious presence, than a great miracle. Assuredly, being in God's face is more important, than the provision of His hand. Too often we seek to be physically rich, than spiritually abundant.
Glory seekers go further than experiencing God's presence. It's not enough for them to know that God is with them and protecting them. Rather, they want to look in the face of Jesus, and allow the Spirit of God to transform them into the image of Christ. Glory seekers want to know Him; and after, know Him more. They see Him and in seeing become like Him.
God's glory is the richness of His character and nature. Let us be seek to live in His glory. Spend time with God in prayer and His word, the bible. Build intimacy with Christ. The Holy Spirit will reveal the face of Jesus Christ, like through a glass, and His image will change our character to be like His.
