FAITH FOCUSED PERSPECTIVES

Heavenly Perspectives for Earthly Living
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.” Hebrews 12:2

The first part of the year 2020 came loaded with a unique set of hardships, fears, and challenges for everyone. How you handled it in your personal life depended a lot upon the focus of your faith. God’s Word gives us a higher perspective for earthly living, and it can totally change how you look at life! Faith is more than a belief in God. It is a way of life. The perspective with which you begin and end each day defines and greatly impacts your life and the lives of others around you.

Hebrews 12:1-2 provides a near-perfect summary of Christians running a race with faith as their life perspective. This faith focused race requires endurance and includes handicaps and hindrances! Those believers who through faith have finished their races are now in Heaven cheering us on! The phrase “Looking unto Jesus” speaks of a faith focused perspective found in Jesus. The word “perspective” means a particular way of thinking about something. It makes a huge difference where and on what we focus our minds and eyes.
 
A perspective can be compared to the lens of a camera. Camera lenses are more important than the camera to which they are attached. There are different lenses for different situations, just as in our lives. The frustration and bad attitudes we deal with every day come from a wrong perspective or lens on life. We often look at things through our own eyes instead of having a faith perspective that is focused on Jesus!

Wayne Dyer said, “When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.” This year as a church we are challenged to gain higher, heavenly perspectives as we view life through the faith focused lens of Jesus.
 
Looking unto Jesus,
Pastor Ron Thomas
