DAY 24 SUNDAY: MAY 2020

LET YOUR FOCUS BE IN JESUS CHRIST!

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was 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).

God wants you to be focused in Jesus Christ in life. You should let Jesus Christ be your security, safety and deliverance in life. God does not expect you to put your trust on man nor on things of life that are ephemeral. The Bible says in the opening text that looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that Jesus Christ is our goal, focus and fulfillment in life. Life devoid of Jesus Christ is indeed empty and full of vanity forever.

The Bible made it clear vividly that our salvation and deliverance is in Christ Jesus in life. That is why we need to focus our attention on Him in life. That is why the Bible says in John 3:14-15, “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, ‘That whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” Therefore, Jesus Christ is indeed the banner of lifting and exhortation of a Christian in life. Jesus Christ is of course the Savior of the world who came to redeem man from bondage, death and condemnation in life. Indeed, a Christian should avoid giving room for distractions of any kind and learn to focus his attention on Jesus Christ in life forever.

When you learn to make Jesus Christ your focus as a Christian, your life will be transformed from one glory to another. That is the reason why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 3:18, “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” In fact, Jesus Christ is indeed God’s glory that envelops and transforms a Christian in life. Whenever a Christian learns to focus his attention on the Lord, his life will definitely be transformed from glory to glory in life. Therefore, every Christian is expected to be focused on Jesus Christ for a greater life of glory forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian should learn to put his trust in God and let Jesus Christ be his focus in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever (Psalm 125:1).
