Christina and I went to Karissa’s school assembly in the morning. All the first graders were participating as they did various presentations. One part really got to me. The school has been trying to teach the young kids about reaching out to people and having a compassionate heart. They did a specific project, where they invited other students from various local schools to their school. Their goal was to tangible show the other student the love of Christ through games, crafts, food, and interaction.
In the assembly, they had a slide show of the event with the song, “Do They See Jesus in Me” playing in the background. At first, the pictures spoke to me, as it depicted the kids sharing God’s love, but then as I listened to the words of the song, it messed me up.
I quickly sent myself an e-mail to look up the song.
When I got home I did a search and realized that the song was by Joy Williams. I, then quickly went on YouTube to listen to the song again. I came across this video with not only the song and lyrics, but with pictures portraying the heart behind the song.
The reason why it moved me so much is because this has been a long standing prayer of my heart. Many times, I don’t feel like I portray Christ very well in my life. But I am constantly asking God to do His work in me. It is only by His grace we are able to even show Christ in us.
I am hoping and believing in the word of Apostle Paul – “And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” (2 Co 3:18)
