Many Christians think God is just waiting to pounce on them for their failures, and their wrong believing produces wrong living. When you view God that way you can't help but live in constant fear, insecurity, and anxiety over your sins and struggles. Today make a decision to turn your eyes away from yourself and place them on Jesus, for He has already made you righteous with His blood (see 2 Corinthians 5:21). The more you behold Jesus, the more you will be transformed into His likeness. "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord." (2 Corinthians 3:18) Keeping your eyes on Jesus leads to the greatest expression of holiness. Many of us think we have to do more in order to be more holy and accepted by God. As you focus on Jesus and see His love, His forgiveness, His abundant grace, and His gift of righteousness purchased for you with His own blood, your approach to Christian living changes and you are transformed—from the inside out. Holiness comes by focusing on Jesus, not yourself. This is not outward behavior modification, it's inward change sustained by a heart that's been touched by grace and an emancipated -conscience that's freed from guilt and condemnation. As a result you begin to walk in victory instead of defeat. And this is the life that God wants you to experience today.
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen." (Revelation 1:7)
Soon will be the coming of the Lord from clouds and on high! At long last, all creation will bow before Him in full recognition of His majesty and glory. Praise the Lord all you people! Lift His name on high! Bask in the redemptive power of His blood! Believe on Him and be saved in the final day!
