I believe one of our keys for becoming like Jesus is a better focus…
What do I mean?
I believe we must pursue intimacy with the Lord by pursuing His face. We need to focus on His eyes instead of the sin and failures we experience. Picture looking at Him and sin being like a distraction off to the side that Jesus paid for in order to allow you to keep your focus on Him.
Sin is not ok, but it is paid for…. Don’t let it take your eyes off Him! There is therefore now NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus(Rom. 8:1). We become like Him as we behold Him….(my 2Cor. 3:18 paraphrase)
