Words from Pastor Ken

Focus

One thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (PHILIPPIANS 3:13–14)

The powerful FedEx company, headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, exploded into worldwide prominence by focusing on one service: overnight deliveries. And who could talk about the importance of focus without mentioning Starbucks? When other coffee shops were busy dispensing a variety of food services, Starbucks opened coffee shops that focused on—of all thing—coffee!

Focus is fundamental to spiritual success as well as business success. Keeping the main thing the main thing in the midst of a multitude of other things is always a challenge for a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. A key element to spiritual growth, however, is that ability to keep focused on Jesus—and it’s a skill we can sharpen.

“Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.” ‭‭(Colossians‬ ‭3:2‬)

This is a great verse of Scripture to memorize if you haven’t already.

What it is really saying is “FOCUS”. Here is a worthy thing to ask the Lord. Ask him to help you focus on Jesus. If you will do that everything else will come into clearer view. Think about it!
