Heliotrope (Hebrews 12:1-3)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “heliotrope.” Could you imagine what it would have been like to walk with Jesus? We are a couple thousand years away from that specific time period, but think of those who followed him directly after his death. Even by that time people needed reminders to stay committed to the Savior.

“Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
~Heb. 12:2

My question for you is: how well do you keep your attention on Jesus? It's easy to get consumed with all the craziness of even one day, let alone keep an entire lifetime with our eyes fixed on Christ. My prayer is that you continue to be like a heliotrope, which always turns its attention toward the sun, and fix your eyes on the Son. Do not be distracted by anything that comes your way, but instead give others a reason to do the same.

Praying for you,
