“In the Eyes of God”
Tuesday, March 08, 2005 †



“And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I Will build my church, and the powers of death
Shall not prevail against it” (Mathew 16:18).



Who are you? …a simple enough question. Are you an engineer? A priest? A corporate mongrel that delights himself when saying, “I am a partner and a CEO to one of the most lucrative realist ate company out there.” Are you a mom or dad; or a teacher even? It might be true that these are one of the roles you play in today’s society because these are your job titles. But does your job really define who you are? Even a prostitute will say she is much more than who society regards her to be. And so you, the engineer, are there not more to your being…to your soul? Is that how you would want God to see you?

The answer is of course, No!

Who we are as human beings has to be greater than what is defined by our work. We must be the flesh and blood of a caring being. We are children of God who loves and nurtures; we are a strong spirit and a humble servant to the Lord, and an example to our human family. Would you like to know how God sees us?


In God’s eyes, you are:


•God’s very own son or daughter, a child of the King. ( Romans 8:15-16)


•a CHRISTian, called by God’s own name. (1Corinthians 1:2;Acts 15.14)


•a Saint, set apart by God unto Himself. (Philip 3:20)


•a citizen of God’s Kingdom of Heaven, and a tourist on Planet Earth. (2Corinthians 5:20a)


•God’s Ambassador to present His terms of peace to Planet Earth. (2Corinthians 5:20a)


•Planet Earth’s Priest to stand in the gap and plead for mercy at God’s throne. (1Pet. 2:5)


CHRISTian! God’s child! Saint! Ambassador! Priest! Citizen of heaven!

Ah, you are so greatly blessed, but your responsibilities are awesome beyond comprehension. In Christ’s name, do them well. Amen.
