I walk by faith and not by sight, focusing on what is unseen, not on what is seen. I set my mind on things above, not on things that are on the earth. All flesh is grass, and even gold refined by fire perishes. But You remain, Jesus. You endure. Before all time, and now, and forever, You endure. You are the only lasting thing. I set my mind on You, Jesus.
You are the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of His nature. You uphold the universe by the word of Your power. It was fitting that You should suffer, even as we suffer. After making propitiation for sins, You sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. You are high and lifted up, Jesus. First lifted up between the earth and the heavens on a cross; now enthroned on our hearts, lifted high on our praise, and seated at the right hand of the Father. You, Jesus. I set my mind on You, Jesus.
I don’t care what it costs. I will search You out. I will seek You. I will follow You. And I will love You. With every breath, and every step I take – until I cross that threshold to eternity – I will love You. All the days of my life, I will love You. All my desire is for You. All my intention is toward You. Only You, Jesus.
You belong here in my heart, Lord, where I’ve prepared a place for You. It’s what it was made for, to hold You. I was made for You. I was made to adore You. And I do. I so adore You, Jesus.
I for one will love You. You are the treasure in this jar of clay. What radiant glory You are. Wrapped in light You are. Clothed in splendor. Bright shining as the sun. You are resplendent, Jesus. Those who look upon You are radiant. I look on You, Jesus. I fix my eyes – the eyes of my heart – on You, Jesus. Only You, Jesus.
