Principle: Look at Jesus

Here is a principle for Christian living stated by Ed Welch (When People are Big and God is Small, [Presbyterian and Reformed, 1997], 67):

“For every one look at myself I must take ten looks at Jesus.”

That’s a great principle. Lately I’ve been struggling with decisions about the future, my tasks in ministry, my relationship with Frances and Elijah, and I’ve done it the very opposite. I take ten looks at me and one look at Jesus. That may be one significant source of confusion, wasting of time, and sin in my life and relationships before God. What does Jesus say and think about my future plans? What does he call me to do and trust him with in my ministry and relationships and future? What glories of our Savior call me to worship and obey him in these particular situations. For every one look at myself I must take ten looks at Jesus.
