ILLUSTRATION

Christie Kerr of the School of Psychology, University of Glasgow, and Rob Jenkins of the Department of Psychology at the University of New York worked together to study the usefulness of capturing images reflected in the pupils of one's eye. They found that "the incredible level of detail in modern digital photographs were able to pick out the tiny reflections of faces hidden in the eyes of the subject."

“The pupil of the eye is like a black mirror,” said Jenkins. He and Kerr "recovered the images of bystanders that were as small as 27 pixels across … Yet when presented to panelists in a face-matching task, observers were able to match the diminutive faces 71 percent of the time. When the faces were familiar ones, people recognized identity correctly 84 percent of the time."

The implications for the usefulness of recovering such images are varied, including criminal investigation. "The researchers say that in crimes in which the victims are photographed, such as hostage taking or child sex abuse, reflections in the eyes of the photographic subject could help to identify perpetrators."

APPLICATION

Such research brings to mind the old nursery song, "Oh be careful little eyes what you see." In a very literal sense, our eyes reflect what they take in.

What do others see when they search your eyes for evidence of where and with whom you've been? If a reflection can reveal a perpetrator, it can also reveal a Deliverer.

Reflect the glory of God by focusing your gaze on the grace and love revealed in the person of Christ.

"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit" (2 Corinthians 3:18, NASB).

God's Glory Law (of God) Grace

ILLUSTRATION

The glory of the Law was of one kind, but the glory of grace as revealed through the life, death, and resurrection of Christ is of another kind all together.  "For the sake of illustration," says one commentator, "think of glory as light. There is a certain glory of the moon and stars that shine at night. But when the sun comes up in the morning, these stellar luminaries pale. Why? Because the glory of the sun outshines that of the moon and stars."

APPLICATION

Glory is like light in that it speaks of the revelation of God's true nature. Our knowledge and understanding of God's glory is increased by the revelations of God's holy law. But our knowledge and understanding of God is increased so much more powerfully and intimately through the revelation of God's Son. In this way, the glory of grace far exceeds and outshines the glory of the law.
 
"We are not like Moses, who put a veil over his face so the people of Israel would not see the glory, even though it was destined to fade away" (2 Corinthians 3:13, NLT).
