Luminous Eyes

          A sad countenance that refuses to hear and receive the grace of God in Christ is like a man taking a sudden blow to the stomach, oof! He is breathless and his eyes grow dim with discouragement.
But when the Lord speaks His grace to us, and we hear it and believe, it is like an exhausted man taking honey after a long chase. The sad and disheartened eyes are illuminated, the head is lifted up, hope is rekindled and the endurance for the battle is strengthened.
Whereas the enemy was ready to turn back into the fray with his own renewed vigor, the forgiven man, filled with grace and power is a bold, dangerous and pursuing warrior and so the enemy continues his frantic flight.
Blessed are the forgiven, these see the works of the Lord!
