The unmasking of COVID has many literally dropping some guards.
But there is still one set of eyes we should peer into very deeply.
If all we could see were Jesus’ very pupils, we’d be more than just pupils. We’d be His friends and lovers and ardent followers.
But there is another side to that as each disciple would find out when He held their gaze. What untruths and sins are exposed when we see the purity of His pupils?
May that be more comforting than frightening.
PORTAL TO HEAVEN: The violence of His cross could only be topped by the compassion that drove Him to hang on it. Your eyes are doves...Mercy triumphs over judgment…Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus…Jesus looked him hard in the eye—and loved him! He said, “There’s one thing left: Go sell whatever you own and give it to the poor. All your wealth will then be heavenly wealth. And come follow me.”…The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: "Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times.”…but few things are needed--or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her….” Song of Solomon 1:15 NIV, James 2:13 NIV, Hebrews 12:2 GNT,Mark 10:21MSG, Luke 22:61 NIV, Luke 10:42 NIV, Matthew 9:36 NIV, Luke 7:13 NLT
