Look to Jesus

 

looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith,

who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross…

Read Hebrews 12:2, NKJV

 
If we want faith to grow and be strong (and we do!), we need to be focused on Jesus.  The attention many of us give Jesus is more like a casual glance in His direction from time to time than the concentrated focus of our complete attention.  William Barclay had the right idea when he said, “So often we have a kind of vague, wistful longing that the promises of Jesus should be true.  The only way really to enter into them is to believe them with the clutching intensity of a drowning man.”  We cannot afford to be casual about this.  Our lives depend upon strong faith and the ability to walk in the power and authority of Christ alone. Keep your focus on Jesus and His finished work at the cross. At Calvary He overcame the world and conquered our Enemy.

 

WORDS OF FAITH:

• I am focused on Jesus and my faith is growing.

• By faith I receive strong faith and take my place in Christ at the right hand of God.

• Because I am in Christ, I live a victorious life.
