The Eyes of Jesus

Luke 22:54-62 The viewpoint of Peter, He was the one that in Luke 22:Did the sun and moon stand still34 was told that he will deny Christ, He was the one that defend Christ in the garden and yet here we find him of in the distance, alone, yet surrounded by people. Have we felt this way? Alone, yet around by people? Remember that Peter was Jesus number one follower, they were always together and now from a distance Peter is denying that he even knows Christ. Check out these words, vs 61 and the Lord turned… Wow what words. Imagine the scene here, Jesus is off being questioned and under the keep of the guard’s who are more than happy to make him less than happy. Jesus in the midst of his trial heard the 3rd crow and looks at Peter, what were his eyes like? What was he saying with them? Were his eyes filled with disappointment, sadden heavy

hearted? Were they glaring into the very soul of Peter? Thinking about the eyes of Christ, these are the same eyes that

That saw Mary, looking down at him the manger

They saw the wise men bring gifts from afar

They read the scrolls in the temple as he taught the Scribes

They witness the descending doves from Heaven as John the Baptist baptized him

They look at the servants as he told them refill basin with water,

They got some dust in them as the straw was removed from the roof top as the lame man came down,

They were first thing that the blind man saw as Jesus healed him,

They looked into the eyes of women on the ground, reaching down with forgiveness

He smiled with his eyes as he witnessed the faith and gratitude of the healed lepers

He looked into the eyes of Martha as she rubs the ointment on his feet,

He looked at Zacchaeus as he scurried down the tree, He looked at the crowd having compassion on them

He looked at those gathered around a dead man’s cave and his eyes filled with tears as he commanded it be rolled back, and here in this text, they are looking across the way deep into the eyes of Peter. What are Jesus eyes looking at today, in your life?
