My Eyes, His Eyes

For God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the 
face of Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:6

I still get pensive when I think about what happened that day while working at a bank in one of the outside windows.

Math had never been my strong suit so I always had a hard time balancing at the end of my shift. Why they did not fire me is still a mystery, but that is not what causes me to spend so much time thinking about that day.

One afternoon for a reason that I will never understand, they put me in the commercial window. Volumes of money went in and out of that window. My frustration level elevated at the mere thought of trying to balance a commercial window.

Then, it happened. A lady came through with a deposit. After I conducted her business transaction she asked me if I had accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. A wee bit taken aback, I said that I had. She then proceeded to tell me that she already knew because she could see it in my eyes.

In my eyes? I felt so frustrated and overwhelmed. How could she see Jesus in MY eyes?

Could the Holy Spirit speak through my eyes even when I did not feel like I had acted particularly pleasant that afternoon? Could others recognize Him in my eyes whether or not I acted like I had Jesus as my Savior? What a lot to ponder!

The whole experience really challenged me. I should act like a Christian no matter what the circumstances. I never know who may see Him in me. I would hate for my actions not to reflect the same Lord and Savior that lady saw in my eyes. Or were they His eyes?

God, thank you so much for shining through your servants. It gives us hope to know that Your reflection can be seen in spite of ourselves.
