Follow the direction of the Eyes
If you were getting ready for a surgery, would you want a Doctor that was half-hearted in his practice? As you travel to new destinations, would you want a pilot that is half-hearted in his policies and procedures before takeoff? How about your children’s teachers? Would it be OK if they were more focused on themselves other than on the education of your children?
It would not be worth your salvation to follow a savior that did not want to give it everything to save you.
Thankfully our Savior isn’t like that.
And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, (Luke 9:51)
When it says that “He Steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem”, that means He was absolutely determined to go there. Why was he so focused to do this? Prior to this Jesus spoke with Moses and Elijah on the mount of transfiguration. He knew what was before him in Jerusalem. Suffering and dying for the sins of all mankind and then the resurrection on the third day.
He was going to carry the weight of our sin to the cross so that we may taste forgiveness of our sins and the blessing of eternal life in heaven. Jesus was not half-hearted about being our SAVIOR! He gave it all. He spilled his blood and gave up his life that we may live.
With the recent Covid-19 topic being pushed into every nook and cranny of our lives, we must keep our eyes focused on Jesus so that our lives will follow our eyes.
He is risen, His risen indeed!
A blessed Easter to all,
