Welcome back to Music Monday!
This morning I want to share with you a song that compliments a scripture that has been on my heart recently.
The scripture is Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
There is much to ponder in these few sentences although what I want to bring to your attention this morning is the statement “fixing our eyes on Jesus”. We move toward what we are looking at and focusing upon.
As Christ followers we must have our focus upon Him. The more we focus on Him the less we will be distracted or even be derailed from our pursuit of Him.
Lets turn our eyes upon Him.
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
Sung by Michael W. Smith
Turn you eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face;
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.
