TITLE: JESUS GIVES CLUES
VERSE: We [run our race] by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. HEBREWS 12:2
The answer to every question in the Christian life is: Keep your eyes on Jesus.
The most important thing in the world is this: Keep your eyes on Jesus.
That’s not to say that other things aren’t important, but if we want to find our true selves, then we have to look at Jesus. He is the only one who can give us a true picture of God’s nature. He is the only one who can speak words straight from God’s mouth. And He will answer our prayers if we abide in Him as He promised us—and then ask whatever is on our hearts.
Jesus gives us ample cues about how to stay connected with God and bring the climate of heaven to earth. But whatever growth we desire, whatever promises we’ve been given, whatever calling and destiny we step into—it’s all through our life in Him.
We can be distracted by the tasks of the day, but that doesn't mean we have to lose focus on the top priority of our lives: Jesus. If we ever get distracted, we need to do whatever we can to regain it. We must keep Jesus front and center amid all the distractions and responsibilities of life. When we are fully living "in Him," not just as our God-given position but in our practical awareness, we don't just "get by." We are more alive than we have ever been.
For me, the most important thing I have discovered about hearing God's voice is that it starts with being connected to Jesus. When we are deeply connected with Him, He will speak to us. And when I say "deeply connected," I don't mean just once a week at church or around the dinner table. I mean every day, moment by moment.
You can hear God if you are aware of being deeply connected with Jesus moment by moment. He is in us and we are in Him. And all of life—every aspect of it—is based on that relationship.
Jesus, it’s so easy to forget that it’s all about You. My life, my desire to follow God, my longing to hear His voice —it’s still all about You. As You live Your life within me, my heart softens toward God and my spiritual ears open up. So live fully, deeply, and boldly in every inch of my being.
