Scripture Notes (1)

"We look … at the things which are … eternal" (1 Corinthians 4:18).

"Looking to Jesus" (Hebrews 12:2).

Lift up the eye to the things that are above the sun, to Him who sits enthroned above all circumstances in the glory of God; there is your goal, that is your destiny. And the power that dwells in the risen Christ is active to bring you there. It is the knowledge of the power and the glory refulgent in that blessed Person, whose love is changeless and eternal, that makes the Christian superior to the forces that beset his onward march, and independent of the attraction of temporal things.
