Athlete, Fix Your Eyes

"We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne."
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭

This week we have been journeying through the topic of integrity, and how to hold on to our convictions and not compromise our integrity in a culture where that can be very hard. When the  pressure to compromise our integrity gets too much what do we do?

The scripture above gives us a look at what to do in order to continue to keep running the race God call us to. Athlete, look to Jesus. When you don’t know what decision to make in a certain situation look to Jesus. When  the temptation to cut a corner or get an unfair advantage arises, look to Jesus. In times when we fall short and compromise our integrity, look to Jesus.

The Hebrew writer talks about how we should keep on eyes on Jesus, because our faith starts with him and it comes to completion through him. Jesus held on to his integrity, even when he knew he was going to have to suffer for it. My athlete, let's continue to look at our great example for help, wisdom, and comfort as we strive to keep our integrity in a culture where it is far too easy to lose it.
