Since I was a child, I have always wanted one of my super powers to have is the ability to shoot laser beams out of my eyes. That is probably why I have always thought that Cyclops was really cool. The undisputed leader of the X-men, Cyclops posseses many intangible qualities and great leadership skills. Oh yeah, he also has the ability to emit powerful energy beams from his eyes known as an “optic blast”.
Cyclops can do a lot of damage using his eyes and as Christians so can we. However, the damage we experience does not impact others… it damages our own spiritual lives. We need to be very careful what we allow ourselves to enter our lives via our eyes.
In Matthew 18:9 Jesus says If your eye causes you to sin then pluck it out, It is better to enter life with one eye than thrown into hell with two” (I am not telling to gouge your eyes out but understand the seriousness when Jesus said that.) We need to be careful with the things we watch on tv or on the big screen. We need to be watchful on the things we read.Young men, watch the way you look at that fine girl you see at the store. (Matthew 5: 28 “But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart”.) That goes for you too ladies. Be careful the way you look at the hottie you sat next to in math class.
Satan, the oppurtunist that he is, will use anything to trip us up and make us fall. Don’t give him the oppurtunity. I encourage everyone to be like Job and make a covenant with your eyes. Do not allow your eyes to look at things that isn’t of God. Lets strive to keep our eyes holy as we strive to be more like Christ.
