Where Are Your Eyes?

Consider this:

“Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flatters himself in his own eyes that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated” (Psalm 36:1-2).

Why is there no fear of God?

Because his eyes are on himself.

What is the result?

The voice of transgression speaks loud and clear. Sin is not seen for what it is. Instead of hating sin, it is delighted in.

When the fear of God is set before our eyes we begin to see sin for what it is…and we hate it.

“God, may we fear and reverence your name. May our lives be lived out of a glorious vision of Christ.”
