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 has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. – Heb 12:2 (NKJV)
More than ever before, it is time to remind ourselves
to look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.
We have Christians confessing that Jesus is their Lord
and saviour but their expectations are in the abilities of men and not in the
power of God. Their hope is in the connections with people in high places and
not the divine orchestration of God.
Some children of God are thinking that the reason
things haven’t turned out well for them is because they don’t know some
powerful people or people who are well connected. When Christians express
thoughts like this, you can’t help but wonder if these people really know the
Jesus they refer to as their Lord and Saviour.
While it is good to know people and be connected,
you can’t be more connected than knowing Jesus! Jesus is the most important
person you will ever know because he can determine what happens now and in
eternity. His power is beyond this world but the men you trust in don’t have
powers beyond this world. Even in this world, every man is limited by something
that cannot limit Jesus.
Who have you been looking unto? If it is not Jesus,
you better switch over today. There is none who can help you the way Jesus
will. He also helps wihtout complicating things.
