This, again, is the biblical definition of GRACE - far MORE than the legal concept of "forgiveness".
May we let God flow through us.
Words of knowledge, spoken through the Spirit, DO set the captives free.
But you are correct to imply that it is our VISAGE which first impacts the souls of those we meet.
"May we let God flow through us." Then it is the light that is our visage. I try to remember to pray as I enter any place, as I walk about the city, as I encounter many faces. It sure helps me not to react in worldly way, it also disarms people who want to be annoyed and nasty.
But aren't the people of New York City the most charming and friendly in the world???
My dad was going the wrong way on a one way street, and a Taxi was coming, and he wanted to meet us so badly he came up full speed and blew his horn in greeting. Then he wished us well as we return to Michigan where we belong.
And he did all this even though it was easy to see he was having a rather difficult day.
Just think how friendly he would have been on a GOOD day!
Rarely have I encountered such engaging people!
