Fix upon Jesus

Remember this hymns that spoke to me, "Turn your eye upon Jesus." One of my favorite hymns.

Today devotion really spoke to me as one of the lecturer was sharing on this passage,
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. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."

Race that marked out for us is like running on the track without lines that make us run not in a straight line. The only thing that can help us to run in straight lines is that we focus on the finish line. This is what the lecturer said.

And my further thoughts is that as we run on track and when we focus on lines on the track, we will lost our focus and we will run slightly slower because our focus is not on the finish line but whether we are running straight or not. If we have one focus that is to finish the race by focusing on the finish line, I believe we will be the first who reach the finish line.

Our focus? of course Jesus

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
