I have always had trouble recognizing faces. Whenever I meet someone new, it seems like I need to have five or six different conversations with them before I can easily know who they are when I see them. It doesn’t take much to throw me off. If you are wearing glasses when I meet you, and the next time we meet you don’t have glasses on, you might have to remind me who you are. If we have recently met, and you change your hair style, I might not know you the next time I see you. If you are dressed differently from when we first met, or if I see you in a different setting, I may struggle to remember who you are. This has caused me a bit of embarrassment on a few occasions. I try to study faces, but this is something that I will always struggle with.
Aren’t you glad that Jesus does not have any trouble recognizing his people!
