Keep your eyes on Jesus

Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of or faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Jesus was willing to die for you. He was willing because He knew the final outcome of His sacrifice. How then, can we not trust Him to intercede on our behalf when we have need? We have not because we ask not and we ask not because we trust not. If we are to have a strong walk with Christ Jesus, we have to look to Him as the pioneer and perfecter of our faith. We have to look to Him and not take our eyes off Him. We take our eyes off him when we are lured in by the weight and sin of the world which clings so closely.

Peter walked on water when he kept his eyes on Jesus. Then the problems of this world drew him away-and he sank. What better example do we need to keep our eyes on our Savior? When life’s storms come our way, the first action we should take is to look to Jesus for our salvation. He will always intercede on our behalf when we pray according to the Father’s will. Keep your eyes on Him.
