It is easy to lose focus and before we know it, we forget what is really important. We get distracted and tend to miss out on what really matters. We can seem to figure out why our life is not working the way we know it could and should.
The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing! Sounds simple enough, but the truth is that this ends up being one of the biggest battles of our earthly existence. Just a couple of weeks ago, most of us were celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We know that it’s a big deal, because Jesus died on the cross for our sins, so that we could be forgiven and restored to a right relationship with God our Creator. Jesus was buried in a grave, but Jesus did not stay dead. Through the resurrection power of God, Jesus was raised from the dead, defeating sin and death. The same resurrection power that bought our salvation, restoration, redemption. Is the same power that enables us to live a victorious life here and now.
Resurrection Is Life! We were created for blessing and victory. The battle is putting the old self to death and the only way that ordinary you and me can accomplish that extraordinary task is by allowing the resurrection power of God that flows through Jesus to flow into and through our life and living, so that we can put to death the flesh and come alive to the Spirit.
It’s a classic FLESH VS. SPIRIT battle! God does not just save us, so that we can miss hell and go to Heaven. God saves us, so that we can immediately begin to live in a relationship of love, power and victory with Him. A relationship that makes the impossible, possible. A relationship that allows ordinary you and me to do extraordinary things to be a blessing to others and give glory to God.
Stop letting life distract you and keep the main thing the main thing by focusing on and growing your relationship with God through Jesus and the filling of the Holy Spirit…
- The next step is getting out of the way of the new self!
