FIX YOUR EYES ON JESUS
This year we want to encourage you to fix your eyes on Jesus. Far too often I think we talk around Jesus than we talk about Him. We naturally gravitate toward anything but Jesus. We talk about grace, the gospel, the Bible, a Christian worldview as if these things can save us. The interesting thing is we too often separate the cross from Jesus as if it had some power of its own. These, and other concepts, are all wonderful things but if we are not careful they can easily push Jesus aside. Theological concepts which are meant to describe Jesus and His work get treated as things in their own right. Jesus just gets treated as another brick in the wall. The center of Christianity, its crown jewel, is not an idea or a system. It is not even the gospel. The center of Christianity is Jesus Christ. He is not a mere topic to be talked about in the abstract. Without Him, all of our ideas, systems, or words are not Christian. We want to invite you to join with us as we fix our eyes on Jesus. We will begin by looking at Jesus in the beginning during the month of January.
