When we look away from the cross, we find ourselves in a metaphorical breathing of water instead of air. We are not meant to look upon our troubles in the same way that Christ does. If we do, we will drown.
Christ calls us to look upon His glory; to partake in the hope of heaven. When we do this, all fears and troubles seem to wash away.
So, look to the cross, look forward in the race, not backward. Nothing of value is behind us, only the hope of our future is worth investing in for today.❞
When Jesus said “Love your enemies,” maybe he even meant those parts of ourselves with which we’re not yet at peace.
Woah. Never thought about it like that. Thats a really good point :)
