We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.Hebrews 11:2
Focusing on Him
How do we grow our faith in this life? We keep our eyes on Jesus. He is the champion, the one who initiates and perfects our faith. He will continue to shape us into the person He wants us to be. Jesus endured the cross, all of the pain and suffering that went with it so that we may come to know God the Father. If we keep our eyes on Him as our champion, we will stay the course.
The minute we take our eyes off of the Lord, we will begin to fall. Look at Peter. As long as he kept his eyes on Jesus, he could walk across the water to Jesus. The second he focused on the raging sea, he began to sink. If we focus on the world, we will drown. We myst keep our eyes on the King.
A Prayer to Remember
Help me keep my eyes on you , Oh Lord. May I always focus on you and the cross. Amen.
