Focused

“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.” Eph 4:15 (NIV)

You become what you focus on.

Diffused light is weak. Focused light can cut steel. God blesses a life that is focused on His mission. His mission involves knowing, growing, and going. God wants you to know Him personally and intimately through an abiding relationship with Jesus. God wants you to grow in Him through prayer, Bible study, and connecting with other believers in a small group. God wants you to go into the world shining His light and sharing His love.

Are you focused?

  • “But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” Josh 24:15 (NIV)
  • “Let your eyes look straight ahead,¬†fix your gaze directly before you.” Prov 4:25 (NIV)
  • “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” John 4:34 (NIV)
  • “Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Phil 3:13-14 (NIV)
  • “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.” Heb 12:2 (NIV)

Is your life fragmented? Are you trying to keep too many plates spinning? Maybe God wants you to downsize from thirty spinning plates to three. Focus your life on knowing, growing, and going. Eternity is at stake!

Pursuing God,
