Where we look matters. The gospel writers are looking to the Risen Christ. I want to focus my inner and outer gaze on the Center too.
Center of All, I am looking to You.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2 (NRSV)
Invitation to Pray:
Whether you feel close or far from God, can you bring your attention to focus on Christ? As you do, what prayers are emerging in your body, mind, heart, and imagination? Pray them now.
