Thoughtful Thursdays – Elyse Fitzpatrick

“The gospel teaches us that instead of focusing our ourselves and our closely clinging sing, we’ve got to focus on, to consider, Jesus. We’ve got to look away from our sin, whether because it’s alluring and drawing us toward it or because it’s condemning and pushing us into ourselves and away from our Savior. We must patiently focus all our attention on him. We’ve got to think on, ponder, or consider Jesus. Ever aspect of the gospel is meant to encourage us in our war against sin. Of course we should be aware enough of our sin that we seek to repent of it and are grateful for the cross, but that’s not where our thoughts should settle. Our thoughts should be steadfastly riveted on what Jesus has done.”
