“The writer of the book of Hebrews has an answer to those questions and it’s one that might surprise you. It’s not a set of rigorous spiritual disciplines. It’s not a three-month discipleship programme. It doesn’t involve going to Bible college or locking yourself away in a monastery. His answer is simple – fix your eyes on Jesus.”
“Meditating on Christ will give us a little foretaste of heaven and meditating on the glory of Christ will revive our souls and transform our lives.”
“Jesus is for life, not just for Christmas. He’s not just the reason for the season; he’s the meaning of everything. He’s not just the point of Christmas; he’s the purpose of life.”
“History is moving to a point where Jesus will be proclaimed as Lord, every knee will bow before him and every tongue confess his name, all nations will belong to him and all creation will be his. And our lives, therefore, need to move towards this point as well. Jesus is to be the goal of each day we live and breath we take.”
“So, fix your eyes on Jesus in the busyness of Christmas. Pay attention to his words. It’s easy to be distracted. But being a Christian
is not a Sunday morning activity. It’s a radical reorientation of one’s whole life.”
“Here’s how to save the planet: God needs to restore our humanity, break the power of the devil, free us from our fear of death, and atone for our sins. This is what he has done in the person of Christ.”
“All the promises of God find their ‘yes’ in Jesus. All the hopes and longings of God’s people are realised in him.”
“If you want to know what it means to be truly divine, then look at Jesus, for in Jesus we see God. But the same is true for humanity. If you want to know what it means to be truly human, then look at Jesus, for in Jesus we see the true man. “
