eyes fixed on Jesus

Take a hard look at Jesus. He’s the centerpiece of everything we believe, faithful in everything. Hebrews 3:1

Bible heroes have one thing in common–faith. So what’s so different from their faith and mine? I’d like to think that my faith is pretty solid.

The difference is probably the same thing that caused the author of Hebrews to forget to tell us who he is. Both in chapters 3 and 12, he says that the faithful LOOK to Jesus. The original Greek word is not just a word that means “open your eyes and see.” It means to have your eyes fixed on what you see, to give Jesus your undivided attention.

It means you must focus so hard on Jesus that you are not distracted by anything–not by the noise of stress, not by the murmurings of disappointment, not even by the guilt inside your heart. When you are that focused, you can’t help but see yourself a genetic heir of God, filled with His potential to do great things, to be exceptionally full of faith.–The writer of Hebrews was probably so focused in communion with Jesus that a byline became irrelevant.
