Hebrews 12:2 “…Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God…”


There are so many things in life that can distract us. Not all of it is bad in itself either. But, nevertheless, if we allow ourselves to become preoccupied by something, it can often distract us from being preoccupied with Jesus.

We are reminded here to look away from all that would distract us, and to look to Jesus. He is the leader and source of our faith. He is the reason we believe. He is also its finisher—bringing it to maturity. Jesus never allowed the issues of life, or the pleasures of life, to distract Him from the ‘cross’—which was the reason He came.

May we be mindful of the distractions, and not become so preoccupied with other things.

We need to always remain on track, for life has so much that distracts.
