See Jesus through the lens of the New Testament


Fix your eyes upon Jesus in a lowly stable in Bethlehem, and know that He is the virgin-born Son of God.

 

Fix your eyes upon Jesus and know that, as no other man, He lived a sinless life, and always, without exception, did the perfect will of His Heavenly Father.

 

Fix your eyes upon Jesus at His baptism in the Jordan River as the Holy Spirit descended upon Him, and hear the voice of His Father say, “this is my beloved Son in Whom I am well-pleased”.

 

Fix your eyes upon Jesus in the synagogue in Nazareth as He testified of Himself with these words: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon ME, because he hath anointed ME to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent ME to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

 

Fix your eyes upon Jesus as he taught His Father’s truth, healed the sick, restored the sight to the blind, and raised the dead; and, in so doing these things, demonstrated that He had the power to reverse the effects of sin.

 

Fix your eyes upon Jesus as from the cross with His last breath He Cried Out these triumphant words: “It is finished”. He was speaking of redemption for which purpose He had come into the world.

 

Fix your eyes upon Jesus on the third day following His crucifixion and burial and see the empty tomb and know that Jesus defeated satan, light defeated darkness and life defeated death.

 

Fix your eyes upon Jesus and see Him as He ascended from the Mount of Olives to Heaven, there to be enthroned at the right hand of His Father as our great High Priest, our advocate and intercessor.”
