In a great orchestra, every member must look at the conductor. From the conductor, each instrument receives key instructions, and under his guidance, there is a sensitivity for the mood of each song. No musician would look at his audience, but at the director.
This is exactly what Jesus Christ desires from each believer. Christ alone has control of our lives. If we can focus our attention on Him, then we will have no problem experiencing the satisfaction and fulfillment of His direction. Christ’s revelation, His Word, His guidance, and His instruction should be ever before our faces. He desires us to “seek those things which are above.” He asks this only because He has called us by name and is with us according to Isaiah 43:1, 2a: “But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passes through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee.”
