The face. The part of the body that sends many signals by the use of its 42 facial muscles. For years, it has been argued that there are 6 facial expressions of which the 42 muscles use to demonstrate a human emotion. Those 6 expressions are: happiness, sadness, fear, anger, surprise and disgust.

However, new scientific research is finding that there are only 4 facial expressions (anger/disgust and fear/surprise) rather than 6. Rose Eveleth, a contributor for the Smithsonian Magazine wrote, "Now, a new study out of the University of Glasgow suggests that some of those share facial "signals" and should be combined. They argue that fear and disgust share the same key facial signal: the wrinkled nose. The same goes for fear and surprise, both involve widened eyes and should be combined."

If facial signals can be combined sharing the same facial features...what does the face of God look like? What are His facial features when:
1. You lie?
2. You hurt someone you love?
3. You experience joy and jubilation?
4. You see the face of your first born child?
5. You live life?

The face of God has not been seen by the human eye, nevertheless, we know of the Father by the actions and ministry of the Son. One day we will see God face to face and when we do., I'm sure that the facial expression we will be seeing will be joy and jubilation as God uses His 42 facial muscles to welcome us home!

So, until the next time. This is Pastor Tello reminding you that thoughts do change lives!
