Looking Unto Jesus


The writer of Hebrews urges us to “run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:1-2).


Heart disease runs in our family, so I run each morning. And as I’m running, my body is groaning. Things hurt. And as things hurt, I’ve learned I have options. Go home. Meditate on my hurts until I start imagining I’m having chest pains—or—I can keep running and watch the sun come up. I have a front-row seat to watch God’s world go from dark to golden. Guess what? The same happens to my attitude.


Wasn’t that the counsel of the Hebrew epistle…“Looking unto Jesus?Philippians 4:6 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.”

Now—what were you looking at?
