Hebrews 12:2 today:
Looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God.
We’re asked how often we remember to fix our eyes on Jesus?
The answer is, probably, daily, but not often enough and hard enough. All too often we can take a fleeting glance when instead we should be fixing our eyes. That said, it can be hard to really, firmly, unflinchingly fix our eyes on Jesus.
If we contemplate the awfulness of the cross; the pain, the suffering, the anguish, it is hard not to turn away. But only when we force our eyes back to the cross do we finally learn of his pain and suffering and understand just how much was done that we might be saved.
