Looking through Gods Eyes

By Pastor Joe Bachman

11/28/2004

How many times have we heard this statement?

You need to look at things and people the way God looks at them.

You have heard people say just ask yourself wwjd

What would Jesus Do?

Or when some one does something to you people tell you to look at them the way Jesus looks at them

You hear this all the time but very few people tell you how to accomplish this.

Well I want to give you a verse today

This verse I want you to memorize it

I want you to get it into your heart

I want you from this day forward to live out this verse

Turn in your bibles and mark this verse

Turn to

2 Tim 2:15

15 Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Notice the very first word it’s the word study

It doesn’t say read to show yours approved

it’s easy to read the bible

anyone can read our verse

2 Tim 2:15

15 Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

When you study you have to ask yourself What does this me?

Or how can I apply this to my life?

So you take this verse and lets study it

The first word is study

So God is saying study. Why?

to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,

and what will be the benefit of that

you will be able to rightly divide to word of truth.

So how does that fit into the message today about

Looking through Gods Eyes

To look at people the way God looks at you have to get to know him personally.

And how do you get to know him personally?

By reading and studying the Love letter he gave us.

We start feel his heart

We start to see his love

We start to see how much he wants to help people

How many people remember Rich Little ( Famous impressionist)

Someone ask him one time how he would come to imitate someone.

He said that he would sit down and listen and watch a persons movements for what seemed to be forever.

Before long he would be able to imitate them

From studying them he would be able to know how to move like they would

How that person would react to different situations

When that person would rise their voice

When that person would give a soft answer

In a essence he would become a twin of that person.

That is how we should be like with God

We should dig deep into his word to become like him

To know how to react to different situations

When to rise our voices

When to give a soft answer

To strive to become like Christ.

(follow the leader)

as long as he kept his hand and eyes on the leader he was able to follow him exactly

when he didn’t look but just felt he could somewhat follow him

when he looked but did not feel once again he could somewhat follow him

but when he could not see or feel him he didn’t even come close to be able to follow him

you could say that is the same way with God

the feeling part is like your prayer life

and the seeing part is like your reading his word

unless you are doing both you will not be able to follow exactly in his ways.

If you say you’re a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ then it is time you picked up your bible and started studying his word and spending time with him in prayer.
