Poem Bible Study

My first poem I want to share with you is When I look into your eyes, it's what Jesus sees when He looks into our eyes and sees  the good we are doing

So here goes

When I look into your eyes

 

When I look into your eyes

I see my precious child

When I look into your heart

I see the love you have for me

 

When I watch your hands and voice

I see my grace and mercy flow out

When I watch your feet move

I see an angel walking through this land

 

When I work through your eyes

I show you a need

When I work through your heart

I see your heart filled with compassion

 

When I work through your hands

I see the faith you have in Me

When I work through your feet

I see a companion walking beside a lonely friend

 

 

Now it is my pleasure to share with you a bible study written by a good friend of mine called Lynn Reichley

 

This poem tells us what God sees as Jesus works through us, on His behalf.

When He looks down on each of us His children as we share Jesus with a lost soul, who needs the love of Jesus. Are we all the same

No because Jesus blesses us with different gifts and talents. You see when we come to Christ everything God gives to Jesus is at our disposal. He gives us a treasure chest of good tools we can use for Gods glory

Let’s look through the poem that Julia wrote to see what God sees in our eyes and our hearts

Before we are able to share Jesus with anyone God will prepare our hearts with time spent in prayer for the lost soul. It may take more than one conversation, so when you go back and pray again for this person God will show you things through His eyes that will prepare you for the next meeting

So, verse one says

 

When I look into your eyes

I see my precious child

When I look into your heart

I see the love you have for me

 

When God looks down on His children, He sees the love we have for Him. We can tell Jesus we love Him all we want but the way He sees our love is by the acts of love we show to others. Have you heard about divine appointments? When we pray to, He will provide opportunities, it may be through a neighbour, co-worker, friend or at the school bus stop. So, keep your eyes and your hearts open

 

When I watch your hands and hear your voice

I see my grace and mercy flow out

When I see your feet move

I see an angel walking this land

 

As Jesus continues to watch, He sees our hands moving as we help other people, He sees us using His gifts of mercy and grace, why are grace and mercy so important. The divine appointment can be stressful for the lost soul and God doesn’t want it to feel worse, so He gives us grace and mercy to show this person how much He cares

Ephesians 2: 4   BY His great love for us God who is rich in mercy, made us alive in Christ when we were dead in our transgressions. It is by grace you are saved

 

 

When I work through your eyes

I show you a need

When I work through your heart

I see your heart filled with compassion

 

Have you ever seen a need in another’s person’s life, through their eyes God shows us their needs in the deepest part of your heart? We need to have a real desire to help them as God promises to give us the desires of our hearts,

 Psalm 37: 4

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your hearts 

So as God gives us glimpses of someone’s life and need, God puts you into their lives because He knows He can meet the need through us  whether physical or spiritual, we can even enlist others if need be

 

When I work through your hands

I see the faith you have in Me

When I work through your feet

I see you sharing Jesus with the lost

 

When God looks and sees our generosity and our willingness to help, He rejoices because it starts and ends in the heart of Jesus, then to ours and finally to the heart of the lost. It is Gods actions through us we could serve this person in word and deed

2 Corinthians 9: 7

 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 9 As it is written:

“They have freely  scattered their gifts to the poor;
    their righteousness endures forever.” [a]

Closing thought

We may never know what happens to that person, but rest assured when we share Gods word it does what God sent it to achieve

Isaiah 55:11

so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

there are many good things,  that Jesus sees,  when he looks into our eyes and hearts
