Fix Your Eyes On Jesus




Hebrews 12:2a says, "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith." There is so much distractions in this world, so much false lights that bedazzle and blind our eyes to the true light of the world. We must have a steady focal point for our attention so that we will not be distracted and fall by the wayside like so many blind and blinded travelers on the face of the earth. Only God and His powerful promises can keep us from stumbling and sinking into the quagmire of the world's sinfulness and total depravity. We can live a very simple life, dedicating and surrendering everything to the Lord for His pleasure and glory alone. We can entrust ourselves, our family, our household and loved ones to the love, care, guidance and protection of the Lord. We can pray to God that He covers us, our family, household and loved ones with the precious blood of His beloved Son- Jesus Christ, so that we can be spared and protected against the unrelenting onslaught of the enemy. Prayers for ourselves, our family, loved ones and for those whom the Lord have placed in our hearts as burdens are the mighty force that enable angels to move about and battle the terrible schemes of the enemies. Mind you, most of the traumas, trials, pains and sufferings we are enduring in this world are caused by the evil ones who are so envious of the whole human race because each person still has the chance to be saved if he accepts Jesus Christ as his Lord and savior and surrender his life to Him. Not so with the fallen ones. They were doomed to eternal death together with those they can mislead to their fate. So whatever the situation maybe, however grim and burdensome your trials maybe, just fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. Let us claim His divine promises and the battle becomes His for our victory.

Look at Jesus. It reminds me of crossing the street. We need to look at the light, not on what others do...
Looking at the Light, we can reach our destination.

Thank you Mel!

God bless!

Hi Krystyna,
That is a very good comparison. So many people meet accident in crossing the streets for their failure to look at the lights. Failure to look at the glorious light that is Jesus Christ result in so many pains and sorrows which could have been avoided in the first place. Thanks for your visit and inspiring comments. God bless you always.

Hello Kuya Mel! I love this post. It reminds us of what really matters. Puts our life back into perspective. The real reason why we are here.

I love the title FIX YOUR EYES ON JESUS. I was once a member of Youth for Christ and we would sing this all the time and it just makes my heart beat fast every time I sing this, like singing a love song for someone I love... Iba talaga ang power ng holy spirit.

Have a blessed day kuya Mel and Keep on posting...

Hi Abbeymae,
You put tears of joy in my eyes by your inspiring comments. Yes, the Holy Spirit works in ways that are so dramatic and life changing. He completes the works of Jesus Christ by glorifying God's only Son, just as Jesus glorified the Father when He walked on earth. I pray that you will be inspired more to seek God's kingdom through the different ministries that may be available to you. Thanks for your visit and inspiring comments. God bless you always.

Hi Tey,
The same Holy Spirit that inspired you inspired me too that is why we have the same topic. It is never a coincidence my friend. Maybe God has a special purpose for this. Yes, I will visit your blog to see it. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always my friend.

when we fix our eyes on Jesus, our problems seem to become so small because as His children, we hold on to and embrace His sovereignty and power to overcome hardships, pains and frustrations in life. when we fix our eyes on Jesus, we experience peace that can only come from Him. and when we fix our eyes on Jesus, we also embrace His promise of victory in our lives.

God bless, bro!

Galing ng post na ito kuya Mel kasi minsan, we get sidetracked, and instead of focusing on Jesus, we focus on wordly things that are way valuable than our saviour.

Thanks for the inspiring post...

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi sis Pia,
Amen to that. You said it so perfectly I cannot add anything anymore. Thanks for your visit and inspired comments. God bless you always.

Hi Fifi,
Yes, whenever we take our eyes away from Jesus, we forget about Him and are sidetracked by the allures of the world. It's just like Peter who began to walk on water when his eyes were fixed on Jesus. But the moment he took his eyes away from Him and into the fears and anxieties of the world, he begun to sink literally and figuratively. Thanks for your visit and inspired comments. God bless you always.

Hi Mel, I really love your posts. I hope other writers can step in and help out more by making inspirational blogs like this. Keep up the good work!

Hi OweEng2,
This is my ministry now. The Lord took me away from my active work of conducting salvation seminar at our local church and from conducting home Bible studies for various cell groups. Now I write inspirational posts for the Lord. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless.
