Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess. – Hebrews 3:1 NIV
When our thoughts turn to Jesus, there is less room to worry about things that don’t matter. In most cases, the things that we worry about today, we won’t even remember in five years.
Returning our thoughts to Jesus is a meditative practice. It is normal for our minds to wander, and when we catch ourselves over-thinking, we can gently turn our thoughts back to Jesus. Then we can experience peace.
Jesus is our high priest. He is worthy of praise.
Excessive worry–and turning our thoughts away from Jesus–can be a form of idolatry. Idolatry can be anything that takes our attention away from God, but He is able to transform our thoughts. Amen.
