“You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.” Mark Twain
Spring Track season is here and with it come the running competitions. Whether a 100 yard dash or a 26.2 mile marathon, runners must train to persevere. This requires pacing themselves according to the length of their race while they STAY FOCUSED on the finish line set before them.
As followers of Christ we are challenged to STAY FOCUSED on Him in the race of life…
Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross…. Hebrews 12:1-2 NIV
How do we “fix our eyes on Jesus”?
1. Know what your goal is – study the person of Jesus who is God himself.
2. Commit to training – put into practice the directives given in the Bible
3. Set a pace to get you to the end – walk in communication with your Heavenly Father
PRAYER: I want to STAY FOCUSED on you, Dear LORD. Help me to persevere in life by fixing my eyes on You. Remembering your endurance on the cross, I will run the race your have marked out for me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
GET FOCUSED ON JESUS…AND STAY THE COURSE!
