Hebrews 3:1 says it this way:
Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling,
fix your thoughts on Jesus,
the apostle and high priest whom we confess.
My thoughts usually range from Good Shepherd to ESPN to Julie and my kids and then back to Good Shepherd.
They’re not fixed anywhere, much less on Jesus.
What would it look like in my life if I truly fixed my thoughts on Jesus?
I’d have courage where I now have fear.
I’d have tolerance where I now have judgment.
I’d have wisdom where I now have confusion.
I’d have holiness where I now have sinfulness.
Fixing thoughts on Jesus — his life, his words, his death, and his continuing exaltation at the right hand of the Father.
I’ll try it today.
