“Eyeballs”

Hebrews 12:2 “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” This may be one of those analogies that is difficult to relate to, but I clearly remember being in the Marine Corps Boot Camp and hearing the command our drill instructor gave when he wanted everyone to look at him.

Psalm 8:3-5  David was awe struck, and I can understand.
