Gaze upon His face

"Let us . . . run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith".

In order to stay spiritually fresh-
You must keep your eyes fully focused on Jesus!

Jesus was the most alert and alive person the world has ever seen. Never once do we read that He experienced spiritual staleness, or had to confess to being out of touch with heaven. He was always confident, always assured, always in the right place, always doing the right thing at the right time.

Even after a period of prolonged fasting in the wilderness when He faced the fiercest of temptations, He turned - not exhausted and limp as a wet rag - but "in the power of the Spirit."

One of the ways by which we can become more and more like Christ is -
- to stand with unveiled faces and continually gaze upon His face!

Look beyond yourself to Another!
And thus free yourself from self-preoccupation!!

2 Corinthians 3:18 gets our gaze in the right place-
On the face of Christ: "We all, with unveiled faces, are reflecting the glory of the Lord and are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory."

The attention we give to this is important!
- for whatever gets our attention gets us!!

When Christ gets our attention-
He also gets us.

Our gaze must be person centered!
- not problem-centered!!
And that Person must be Jesus Christ.

When I look at myself I feel unworthy and inadequate!
But when I look at Jesus, I feel anything is possible!!

Do not just to glance at Him!
But gaze upon His face, continuously!!

The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
