Ten Things To Pray For In The Year 2014: # 5 Focus


Hang around me long enough and you’ll hear me talk about “focus.” Not only have people told me that, I recognize it is true. It is so important to me because I know from the Word of God and from experience that without focus, something bad is bound to happen.

The Bible tells us to “run the race set before us…looking to the author of our faith.” If we are in a race that we are running, then why are we watching the CSI Marathon? (how is that getting you closer to the goal of eternal life?) The Bengals and the Patriots? (Maybe it has some usefulness, but are you using your time wisely?) Buffy The Vampire Slayer (if you’re watching crap like this, you haven’t got a clue what you’re doing- it certainly doesn’t go with the lifestyle of one following after Christ!).

Get your focus back…like a horse with blinders on, focus on the goal and run the race with perseverance…stay focused on sharing the gospel, living out the gospel, and thinking on things above. 

If you don’t, you’ll find yourself literally off-track, running right into a bog, or off onto another path. Do not be deceived, there is only one way to God…

Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the light.”
