“The beauty of the Lord shines through your eyes.”
When Christians behave as commanded, loving people as the Father, we become role models to those unacquainted with God’s love. Leading a godly life is a form of indirect evangelism. This is because our lifestyle and faithfulness often familiarize people with God’s love as they experience it through us, the vessels of God.
We are called to be a light to those living in darkness. We are lamps of love in dark rooms of hopelessness and a city, a portion of God’s kingdom on display for the naive and lost. In Matthew chapter six, it speaks of the eyes being the light of the body. People observe our actions and analyze our motives. Upon discovering no deceit, they question our choices. They see with their eyes the hope and love radiating from our eyes and can be inspired.
This is a viable reason why Paul commands us to be prepared to answer for the cause of our hope and joy to those who ask. Because of our most basic choices in speech, action, and attitude, we have the ability to inspire and motivate those living in darkness to be of courage and step into the light of hope and peace in God’s presence. We are advocates for God’s love and his beauty consistently shines through our eyes.
