Looking to Jesus

In Hebrews 12:1-2 we read:

“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.(New Revised Standard Version).

The word of God tells us to look to Jesus only as He is the only one who came to save us and to give us the fullness of life.As we read in Acts 4:12 :

“Salvation is found in no one else , for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved”, God has given us salvation only in His Son Jesus Christ.

Therefore Jesus says: 

” I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” ( John 14:6 ) (NIV).

May God help us to look to Jesus alone for our life and salvation.
