“The lamp of the Body is the eye. Therefore, when you eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when you eye is bad your body also is full of darkness. Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness. If then your whole body is full of light having no park dark, the whole body will be full of light as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light”
In my daily reading of the gospels I came across this scripture. Somehow I had never really noticed it, or it hadn’t really resignated in me until I began classes here. I was in my ‘burn class’ taught by Corey Russell when he began speaking about what we were created to do. He spoke about how our calling in this life and the next is one thing, to love God. He expanded upon that by saying We were made to gaze upon the Holy of Holies. We were created behold BEAUTY.
to know BEAUTY.
He began praying for the gates of our eyes to be purified, to gaze upon the Holy one. There are so many forms of immorality with our eye gates. As a woman one of the biggest things I have found in my journey is how hollywood/media suggesting how women should conform to there image of what ‘beauty’ is. Immorality can begin by fantasizing living this lifestyle which is not what God is calling women to. God is calling us to be holy, and set our gaze on holy things. One of the devils biggest scheme is to try and distract men and women from there calling to gaze upon REAL beauty, if and when he accomplishs this humans slowly forget of Gods goodness and faithfullness and humans begin turning to worldly ‘ pleasures’ to fill this void. Instead of setting there gaze on the Holy one who has infinite joy and ability to fascinate whom we were created to set out eyes upon.
Without continually checking ourselves to make sure what we allow our eyes to see is holy we can find ourselves comparing, settling for less, and undermining the need for holiness in our lives.
JESUS HELP US TO KEEP OUR EYES ON YOU!
YOU ARE REAL BEAUTY.
