What If I Saw Jesus?


What if I saw Jesus in his eyes? 

If everything I do, I do unto the Lord . . .

If when I have done it unto the least of these, I have done it unto Him . . .

As I was on my knees about to deal with my three year old’s rant, the words, in song form, flowed out of my mouth,

“What if I saw Jesus in his eyes? What would my words be?  How would they sound?  What if I saw Jesus in your precious eyes?”

My heart melted right there on my knees.  It is not like the Lord hasn’t used these verses in the past to encourage me to serve my children as unto the Lord before, but in that moment the Lord sweetly broke me.

Meditate on the following scriptures and let the Lord bring to mind who are the, hungry and thirsty in your life.  Who are the strangers, the naked, the ones in prison?  Ladies, they are all right here in front of us on a daily basis.

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.  (Matthew 25:34-40)

I GET IT! =0) I just finished Ann Voskamp's book (so good I am starting over soon!) but the part of serving Him IS serving them (my family) This is a life changer. =0)Thanks for the Bible verse to back it up and meditate on.
