I have heard it said that the eyes are the gateway to the soul, but is it true? I do not know. One thing I know for sure looking into this man’s eyes today I see something that he did not have over thirty five years ago as he played with our younger son Darren in the village.
This is true of many in Bisorio Land these days, as the gospel of Jesus Christ has put new life into their sad eyes and filled their hearts with the joy of the Lord. As I walk through the village today, May 2015, there is nothing that looks that pleasing to my eyes, but one does not have to have the pleasures of the world to have the joy of the Lord.
The proof is walking here beside me praising God for all the good things He has done for him. Yes the eyes might be the gateway to one’s soul but you must walk through that gateway and walk deeper to see something much stronger than the twinkle in their eyes.
The Bisorio tribe has believed the gospel, accepted the gospel and carried that gospel to every village in their language group. Could it be that many people in the USA have believed the gospel but have never accepted the gospel?
The gospel is given to believe, except and share but it is hard to share what one does not have. My heart is blessed and much pleased with what I have witnessed among the Bisorio people.
Ezekiel was astonished as he set with people by the River Chebar, Ezekiel 3:15. I have been astonished with what the gospel can do as I sit with the Bisorio people by the river in Papua New Guinea. JCH
