Distracted or Devoted?

It’s easy to be distracted and unfocused in this life, don’t you think?  Distractions and loss of focus can get in the way in our spiritual life, which we may not even be aware.

Our God wants us to keep Jesus in the center of our lives. God intended His son Jesus to be the center of all things. Distractions don’t fit in the picture.

Jesus is to be the center of all our plans, programs, prayers, events, devotions, and all that you do. Not only should Jesus be first in our lives, He is to be our life. God the Father expects us to have a passion for His son Jesus. He went so far to as to send His son to die on a cross for us. So, He will not accept anything less than an undistracted passion and love for Jesus. 

God the Father’s passion has always been and always will be Jesus. God wants the glory of Jesus to shine through the whole universe.

There is no other glory that the Father wants manifested in our lives. He wants His son Jesus revealed in all his beauty, magnificence, and authority. God has no other plan for the world than Jesus. He is all we have been given to offer mankind.

So what will it be… distracted or devoted?

…fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. – Hebrews 12:2
