LOOK AWAY UNTO JESUS

Lesson 61


Whatever captures the eye, shall consume the mind and define your state of being.

 

Hebrews 12:1-3 King James Version (KJV)

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

God is giving us clear instructions regarding for victory in the face of adversity:

1) Keeping in mind that there is a cloud of witnesses, cheering us on from heaven’s balcony!
2) Laying aside every weight, and the sin which comes with the heavy burdens of worry, fear and strife. Simply give it to Jesus, trusting Him to work things out.
3) Acquiring patience while we are running the race towards the goal of the high calling in Christ. This means that we will endure our difficulties, with the faith and knowledge that God will give us the victory, bringing us into being seated with Christ in heavenly places from where we rule and reign with Him over the difficulties of life.
4) Getting our eyes focused on Jesus, who is the Author and Finisher of our faith; looking at him as our perfect example to rejoice in our victory even beforehand, enduring our difficulties with patience, with faith that God will give us the victory - being seated with Christ in heavenly places from where we rule and reign with Him over the difficulties of life.
