It Brings Focus
Hebrews 12:2 – Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.
The Christian life in the Bible is compared to a marathon, and the way you win a long, hard race is by staying focused on the prize! As we gaze upon the beauty of the Lord, [Ps. 27:4] we become refocused on Jesus, who is our prize and waiting for us at the finish line.
When I was preparing to move to California from Texas to pursue my dream of going to music school, I was working at a job I hated. It was filled with fourteen-hour days of hard labor. The only way I persevered was by staying focused on the prize of someday realizing that dream!
It is no secret that whatever has our attention has us. Let’s let our worship refocus us on the only One who is ultimately worth running for!
