Day 29: Perspective

Hebrews 12:2 “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of
our faith…”

   Evelyn Christenson was the founder of “Christian Women’s
United” as well as an author, speaker and evangelical leader. She
promoted the interface of prayer with evangelism and always
had a way of bringing any conversation, committee meeting or
gathering back to God’s perspective. She would always say, “It’s
Jesus that we need. He will give us wisdom, hope and strength.
Jesus is always our answer. We must look to Him!”

   In this passage, the writer of Hebrews reminds us that we need
to constantly look to Jesus as the author and finisher of our faith.
In fact, the word “looking” literally means “to fix your eyes on.”
Today the American church could become quite discouraged at
the moral and spiritual decline that seems to be ever increasing
in and around it. But, as this text reminds us, when those times
of doubt or despair come, may we look unto the Lord for His
perspective. Jesus is our answer!

Prayer Points
   • Ask the Lord to give you a heart focused on Jesus
   • Pray that the Lord will awaken the church in America to His
