Set your desires

Over and over in scripture we are given instruction on how to reach our eternal destination with God. (Col 3:2)"Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." (Matt 6:33)"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." (Heb 12:2)"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus,".
As a new driver discovers that the car tends to go where they are looking, so our lives tend to go in the direction our eyes (heart) are looking. What is it that you are longing for? What is it you have set your sites on? What is so important to you that you can not keep it to yourself? Does Jesus ever make it to your list?
When Peter was walking on the water, he took his eyes off of the Christ and he began to sink.
In this world full of sin, if we take our eyes off of the Christ, we will sink.
So let us set our minds, seek His kingdom and fix our eyes on the only one who gives the victory, Jesus Christ.
In Him
