LOOKING TO CHRIST


“Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.”
(Proverbs 4:25)

Brethren, let us keep our eyes towards the glory of God in Christ in all things. Let us keep our focus upon Him whom to know is life eternal and run the race that is set before us “looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2).

Let us always look to the Word of God for guidance along the path we walk as we are motivated by His grace and love for us in Christ. Let us not look to the right or to the left as if to let circumstances occupy our minds. Let us not look behind us and dwell on the past (past sins, past problems) to burden us.

Let us keep our eyes on Christ (His glorious Person, His blood and righteousness) who has saved us from our sins. Let us keep our eyes right on and straight before us looking for His blessed and glorious return to glorify us. The command of the Gospel of God is, “Look unto ME, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” (Isaiah 45:22)
