Focusing on Jesus is central to the Christian faith, serving as the foundation for all beliefs and actions. Hebrews 12:2 (NLT) reminds us to "fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith."
Focusing on Jesus helps maintain the purity and integrity of our faith. It's easy to get sidetracked by life's myriad distractions and challenges. However, by keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, we are continually reminded of God’s love, grace, and the teachings He imparted.
Concentrating on Jesus anchors us in times of turmoil. His teachings provide wisdom for navigating life's trials, His example inspires us to act with compassion and integrity, and His promise of salvation offers hope beyond our earthly experiences. In every aspect of life, keeping Jesus as our focal point guides us towards living a life that is pleasing to God and fulfilling to ourselves. After all, it’s about Him.
While we are here on Earth, let’s make Jesus known to everyone.
Lord, help me to keep my eyes fixed on You. Amen.
