Realign your focus this year back onto Jesus.
Hebrews 12:2 says that we need to be looking to Jesus, the author and the finisher of our faith.
He has begun a good work in you and he wants it to continue this year!!!
Today we're all about bringing your attention back upon God! Can I have your attention?
Distractions are all around us. Distractions from vision, distractions from whom God really is, distractions from his power and his word for your life, so it's time to set your spiritual eyes back upon Jesus.
He's the only one who matters, it's all about him!
If you don't have your eyes focused upon him, then it's on something else !
There is plenty of meaningless stuff that can wrap up our attention. It can be simple things but if they take your attention and focus from Jesus, then it's time to reset your priorities!
1 Cor 9:24 talks about our lives being in a race, and all of us run it for a prize. Make sure that the prize you've got, the vision, the goal you've got, is Jesus! He is the ultimate prize!
Paul said that 'this one thing I do, forsaking everything else, I run to win the prize of the high calling, which is found in Jesus Christ!!'
Your year will have definite vision, when Jesus is the true reason your running.
Philipians 3:13-14 "I press towards the mark/goal/the prize…" Like an arrow aimed directly at the centre of a target!
Jesus said that the road to life was narrow and straight. It's a road you don't want to be distracted from, which could cause you to veer off to one side or another.
Let's make a whole hearted commitment to follow Jesus this year!! and remember, to follow someone successfully, you need to keep your eyes on where their heading!!
Try following someone and then take your eyes off them, like in the old private eye movies, and you end up losing the person your after!
Jesus said follow me, not anything else!
If we keep our focus on him this year, then I guarantee you, you'll be led towards all that's good for your life!!!!
