Hebrews 12:2, “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (NIV)
The idea that we are to “fix our eyes” on Jesus is a very intense and exclusive phrase in the language of the New Testament. It means that we are to “strictly look away from something in order to give attention to one thing, at the exclusion of all else.” It means, “to look with undivided attention” at Jesus.
In effect, the writer of Hebrews is telling us to get a ruthlessly narrow focus in our lives– to look away from all other things in order to give our undivided attention to Jesus Christ. Since Jesus is the beginning and end of all things Christian, it only makes sense that He always remains the exclusive vision of our lives! Look away from everything else…stop being distracted by lesser things! Fix your undivided attention, affection, and devotion on to Jesus! Let nothing take your eyes off of him for even a moment!
