Give Me Your Eyes


I have been asked so many times recently the question “What is a Christian?” To me it is simple. A CHRISTian is a follower of Jesus Christ and His example. Christianity is not loud, cruel, narrow minded, or hateful. Christ was never any of those things. Capable, yes, He knew the same enemy that tries to keep us from God today. The difference is Christ did not allow anything to get in the way of His returning to His Father. He listened, and willingly followed God’s instructions to getting home. He paid the price because God said so. So we too could get home where we belong.
The following song lyrics have not only been on repeat in my head today, but also have been some of the most personal to me during my walk with Christ. They are able to sum up what i I am trying to explain. To be a Christian, to be Christ-like is to be an example. To show love to everyone. To promote peace and God’s love for all. Anything else is not necessary. God gave us the way. We are to follow Him.

Brandon Heath- Give Me Your Eyes

“Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight
Touched down on the cold black top
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breath in the familiar shock
Of confusion and chaos
All those people going somewhere,
Why have I never cared?
Chorus:
Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see
Yeah
Yeah
yeah
yeah

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide what’s underneath
There’s a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He’s out of work
He’s buying time
All those people going somewhere
Why have I never cared?
Chorus
Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see
Yeah
Yeah
yeah
yeah

I’ve Been there a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just moving past me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
Well I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way you see the people all along

Chorus (x2)

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see
Yeah
Yeah
yeah”
