Keep Your Eyes on Jesus

Often in the name of discipleship or spiritual growth or inner transformation, Christians are pushed toward radical mystical introspection and self-examination. I find this spiritually dangerous if not grounded biblically, and not led and enacted by the Holy Spirit. Face it, only the Holy Spirit truly knows our hearts and can bring about inner transformation.

For a Christian, the ground of our existence is totally and completely in Jesus Christ. If we desire to grow in our faith and character than we need to look away from ourselves and fully focus on him—his incarnation, life, resurrection, ascension, and final parousia.
