Welcome to “Little Guy in the Eye” or “apple of the eye”. Being a little guy/girl in the Eye of God is all about walking in close relationship with God who is love (1 John 4:8) and extending that love to our fellow man (1 John 4:12). Its not about religion or doctrine, its about relationship with the Most High. Each one of us must work out our own salvation with fear and trembling as God works through us according to His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). If we keep focused on Him and not on religion He will be able to transform us from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:18) until we are formed into the image of His Son (Romans 8:29).
The focus of that which is shared on this website is based upon this concept of seeking God’s face. The Holy Scriptures speak of the Word of God being the apple of our eye (Proverbs 7:2). When we look into the “eyes of God” we see ourselves, when He looks into our eyes He sees the Word, Himself. The ultimate goal of walking with God is that at the end of our journey we will look into His eyes and see the Word as well, His image being formed in and through us. To accomplish this, our eyes should be on Jesus, the Word made flesh (John 1:1)…the Author and Finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2).
Scripture speaks of Jesus as the “Face” of God, His Image (Psalm 44:3; 42:5; Hebrews 1:1-3; John 14:7-9; 2 Corinthians 4:4-6; Colossians 1:12-20; John 17:21-23). For those who read through the articles shared on this website, the focus being on Jesus, I hope, will be readily seen. From all of the Bible being about Him, to all of creation pointing to Him, He is the focus.
In the past some have asked what my “statement of faith” is. I believe I can sum it up in this:
I believe the Bible…from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21. In short, God loves us (John 3:16) and wants us to reciprocate that love to Him and to our fellow man (Matthew 22:37-40). Its very simple (2 Corinthians 11:3), yet impossible to realize in our carnal flesh (Romans 7:18). As a result, we must rely completely and totally on faith in Jesus Christ (Luke 14:26, 33; Philippians 3:7-8). Each person must must make the choice to come to Him in sincerity/simplicity of heart with complete faith/reliance in Him, forsaking our knowledge, power and positions in life. To be a little guy/little girl in the Eye of God, one must be converted as a child (Matthew 18:3), likened to a babe in the bosom of their parents.
Eph 5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
Eph 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
This website comes forth from a number of blogs I’ve been writing since June of 2009. I hope in the coming months to get all of these blogs transferred to this one site. My views have changed (in varying degrees) on many of the subjects written about and as a result the studies are going to be updated periodically as I get the time to work on them. We all see through a glass darkly (1 Corinthians 13:12) so I hope I’ll be granted the grace to correct my mistakes. If you feel so led to help me in this process comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
