HIS COMPASSIONATE EYES
“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”
1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV
What a joyous and happy day it will be when Jesus comes back for us to take us to Heaven with Him and we see Him face to face! We will see His compassionate eyes. Not only does our precious Saviour have eyes that are filled with compassion, His eyes are also filled with unconditional love for us.
Carrie Elizabeth Ellis Breck wrote the beautiful hymn “Face to Face with Christ, My Savior”. When we sing this inspiring hymn, I wonder if we really realize that we are going to see Jesus face to face. If so, our heart should be filled with joy and happiness. O how I long to see my precious Saviour. I love Him so much.
Many years ago as I lay under a bed in a mental hospital where I had crawled because I hated everyone and was afraid of everything and everyone, Jesus came to me. He put His arms of compassion and unconditional love around me and lifted me up from under that bed. Is it any wonder that I love Him so much?
Heavenly Father, we praise You and thank You for loving us so much You gave Your beloved Son to die for our sins. Precious Jesus, You are the reason I live, the Joy of my heart and one day I will see You face to face. Father, I pray for everyone who is hurting. Please comfort them. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
