Give Us Your Eyes

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

What would the world look like if we saw it through God’s eyes? Would we be more brave? Compassionate? Would our priorities change? In the Old Testament, God granted the prophet Elisha’s request to let his servant see the reality of their situation through His eyes. Instead of trembling in fear from the earthly military in front of him, he rested in the protection of the massive, angelic army he saw. In the New Testament, we see Jesus, who is God in the flesh, interact with people in compassion and love—even for the ones no one else wanted to be around. How can we too have the same vision? Well, we need to ask Him for it! And He will be faithful to both change our sight and hearts as we see people the way that He does. Let our prayer today be, “God, give us your vision. Guide us as we seek to share your love.” For more information, visit our website at
