I had 3 reminders this week to fix my eyes on Jesus.
The first came as I was paddle boarding. I turned my eyes from the buildings in the distance, looked down at the water beneath me, and fell into it. I got on my board and thought where I look makes a difference. Fix your eyes on Jesus flashed across my mind.
The next reminder came while eating dinner at a friend’s house*. This was on their wall:
Then, on Sunday, the very first song we sang at church was “Turn Your Eyes On Jesus.”
So now I remind you. “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross (Hebrews 12:2).”
There was a little city with few men in it, and a great king came against it and besieged it, building great siegeworks against it. But there was found in it a poor, wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city (Ecclesiastes 9:14-15).
