Has anyone ever broken a promise with you? Has anyone ever lied to you? We’ve felt betrayals through different forms in this world, but the Lord will never fail us. Even when we face trials or temptations, His words are the lights that lead us through the darkness. His words have the power to comfort us and bring us peace. As we’re enjoying the Lord every day, we should also remember those who haven’t been saved yet. They’re still living in the darkness without any hope. That’s why we should spread the gospel to them and tell them the perfect salvation through Christ so that they too can turn their eyes upon Jesus.
Jesus is the one that passed through death into life. He is the one that makes us alive. He is the one that overcame the grave and won the victory over sin and death. Sometimes it’s really hard to believe that. Especially when things get hard or temptations seem so close. Or when you do something you feel you can’t recover from. But praise the Lord “o’er us sin no more hath dominion”! We are conquerors not because we can overcome sin by ourselves, but because He passed through death into life, and we follow Him there.
If we “turn our eyes upon Jesus,” we are relying on Him to help us, not on our own power. Without Him, we can do nothing, but He’s here for us as long as we turn to Him. It’s hard to remember to do so sometimes, though. The things of this world are so present, so alluring, so interesting, that we forget that Jesus is the only One who can always be there for us. If we continue to “look full in His wonderful face,” then “the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.”
