Speaking of looking to God

May 24, 2013 — Leave a comment

One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek Him in his temple.

Psalm 27:4

♦◊♦


There was nothing attractive about Him,
nothing to cause us to take a second look.
He was looked down on and passed over,
a man who suffered, who knew pain firsthand.
One look at Him and people turned away.
We looked down on Him, thought He was scum.

Isaiah 53:3 The Message

♦◊♦

Keep your eyes on Jesus,
who both began and finished this race we’re in.
Study how He did it.
Because He never lost sight of where He was headed—
that exhilarating finish in and with God—
He could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever.

Hebrews 12:2-3 The Message
