Scripture of the Day - July 19, 2012

Hebrews 12:2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith!

There is a saying, "if you want to be disappointed look to yourself, if you want to be discouraged look to others, if you want to be encouraged look to Jesus." It's not your hold on Him that saves you rather it's His hold on you. Don't depend on your own strength, don't rely on your own understanding, instead look to Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith. Don't focus on your failures, don't focus on your past sins, rather keep your eyes focused on the one who saved you. Figure skaters, when they are doing their twirls, keep their eyes focused on one point which they keep coming back to, turn after turn, faster and faster, they never lose balance because their eyes are focused. Keep your eyes focused on Jesus and you will never lose balance. 
On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand!
