Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of the world
Will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace
This is the one of the few songs that i can just keep repeating over and over again without getting tired of it. I tried to amplify the lyrics a little…
Fix your gaze not on things of the world, your problems, your worries, your anxieties, but on Jesus and everything about Jesus (His majesty, power, loveliness). Look full by putting on the new self that God has given us the freedom to (refer to Col 3). And the things of the world, your problems and every other thing that is bothering you will grow smaller and smaller. Let God’s glory and power be brighter than it.
12 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.
15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
