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. (Hebrews 12:2)
What you focus on expands in influence in your life. If you focus on money, you’ll increase in wealth. If you focus on your body, you’ll be in shape. But why not just focus focus on one thing or person who could bring everything that’s important into your life?
You know the translation from the original Greek of Hebrew 12:2 can be rendered thus:
Looking away…unto Jesus…
‘Looking away from what…?’ you might ask.
From everything dearly beloved. Look away from getting by. Look away from your personal advantage, look away from the news on TV and just look at Jesus.
He can give you everything you’ll ever need in this life because he owns everything.
The Bible says by Jesus everything consists. (Colossians 1:17)
Focus on Jesus by studying the Bible and fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit. Listen to teaching from the Bible.
Little wonder he said that things like seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all other things shall be added unto you.(Matthew 6:33)
