Focus on Christ

“There is one great event, which every day attracts more admiration than do the sun, and moon, and stars, when they march in their courses. That event is the death of our Lord Jesus Christ. To it the eyes of all the saints who lived before the Christian era were always directed; and backwards, through the thousand years of history, the eye of modern saints are looking. Upon Christ, the angels in heaven perpetually gaze. “Which things the angels desire to look into,” said the apostle. Upon Christ, the myriad eyes of the redeemed are perpetually fixed; and thousands of pilgrims, through this world of tears, have no higher object for their faith, and no better desire for their vision, than to see Christ as he is in heaven, and in communion to behold his person. Beloved, we shall have many with us, while we turn our face to the Mount of Calvary. We shall not be solitary spectators of the fearful tragedy or our Savior’s death— we shall but dart our eyes to that place which is the focus of heaven’s joy and delight, the cross of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

—Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
