Where are Your Eyes focused?

Hebrews 12:2-3 (New International Version)
2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Did you know that a dinosaur is living on White Island in New Zealand? It's not the kind we see in a Jurassic Park kind of movie. Rather, it was purchased at a toy store. But it's a dinosaur, all the same!

White Island, an active volcano off the eastern co
ast of the Northern Island of New Zealand, is monitored closely by webcams, and as long as everything stays quiet, it is also visited daily by boatloads and helicopters full of tourists.

The dinosaur suddenly appeared in May of 2004, near one of the webcams. The pink plastic miniature probably fell out of the pocket of some tourist visiting the island, but it landed right in the line of sight of the cam and it became an immediate internet sensation. People from all over the globe, even those who had never heard of White Island, began checking out the webcam, and the toy soon inherited the name, Dino. In fact, Dino soon became so famous that journalists worldwide began visiting the island to take its picture.

A few years later the webcam was moved to more robust housing, and Dino was repositioned to still be in its viewfinder. Dino had become the island's mascot!

Isn't it amazing how one tiny plastic dinosaur can create such an incredible interest in a faraway volcanic island? And all because people saw it on the island's webcam! What we see really does impacts us!

Can you imagine the impact it would have on our lives if we kept our eyes fixed on Jesus all of the time? It would most certainly "shoot adrenaline" into our very souls!

 would be changed forever if we make the decision to stay focused on Jesus, no matter what.

What we see truly does impact us!

Just like Dino, the plastic dinosaur on White Island.

Dear Lord we pray that today would be the day that we would start keeping our eyes focused on You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
