Word from the Preachers:

Focus

And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.                                       1 Cor 2:1-2 (ESV)

 

Staying focused is never an easy thing to do; and in a world of infinite choices at our finger tips, it has perhaps become more difficult than ever. Never before have so many people  been given so many choices with so many options for using their precious time...or, been offered so many distractions for wasting it. 

 

The same is true within the church as it is the rest of the world.

We become distracted by politics.  We become distracted by philosophies...we become distracted by demographic studies, we become distracted by money, and by the latest methods for attracting and motivating people.  We become distracted when good social causes become our top priority, or when maintaining our particular comfort zone becomes our main concern.  We are a people easily distracted.


The most awesome fact in the universe is that the God in whom we live and move and have our being, has revealed Himself and reached out to us by becoming a man....the man called Christ Jesus.  As Paul sat chained to Roman soldier, he wrote to his friends:


“....everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord...

...I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,  I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.                                Phil 3:7, 13-14 (NLT)

 

Do you know Him?  If you do, where is your life focused today?
