Daily Scripture Reading: Luke 9:51
“When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem.” Luke 9:51 (ESV)
At this time, Jesus was still six months away from the cross. He still had a lot of ministry left to do, but His mind and heart were resolutely fixed on the cross. Jesus knew His time was limited. He also knew that Jerusalem was going to be the place of His resurrection—the birth of eternal life.
Think about the difficult things you are facing right now in your life. Pray that the Lord will help you to live each day with the glorious end in mind, rather than focusing on immediate trials. What can you change so that your focus shifts from the everyday to the eternal?
