Okay, admit it. Have you ever looked when the pastor says, “With every head bowed and every eye closed?” The pastor is looking. Why shouldn’t you? If your church has a security team, do you hope they are looking?
Have you ever raised your hand or stood up when the pastor asks for every head to be bowed and every eye to be closed? Can you stand up while keeping your eyes closed without losing your balance?
Let’s say it is about asking people to raise their hand or stand up if they want to receive Jesus as their Savior. Then the pastors starts saying, “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” Do you believe that many people are asking to receive Jesus? So, you decide you want to take a peek just to be sure the pastor is not just saying, “Thank you,” when there are no results?
How about if your intention is to rejoice with people who are far from Jesus who now ask Jesus to come into their heart? Or, you wonder if the person who you have been praying for is receiving Jesus as their Savior?
Whatever your motivation might be, aren’t you glad your pastor was calling people to Jesus? If so, keep your eyes closed.
