📖: Luke 10:38-42
Confession: Psalm 91
We live in a world that is full of sin, temptations, and distractions. Keeping our focus on godly things can sometimes be overwhelming. The devil is relentless. It has a way of getting into people’s minds to keep us busy on irrelevant things such as riches, worries, and pleasures of this world to distracts us from what’s really important, which is our focus on God. Distraction can be very dangerous. It divides our attention, prevents concentration, thereby causing us to derail from God’s purpose for our lives and sometimes missing our blessings.
Distraction is the process of diverting the attention of someone from desired area of focus. It prevents someone from giving full attention to something else. As Christians, distractions can hinder our spiritual growth. Some of us can easily be distracted when faced with challenges. When our job, career, business becomes our focus, we cannot serve two masters, it becomes impossible; we either hate one and love the other. We cannot serve God and money (Matthew 6:24). In church, some people get distracted from listening to the preacher because their focus is on their cellphones.
When we are distracted from our Christian journey, it can rob us of our joy, peace, and happiness. Let us not be like Martha that was distracted according to the book of Luke 10:38-41. God knows and sees our situations and challenges. He made the good and the bad (Ecclesiastes 7:14). God will always take care of us, He is never late, always on time. Therefore, we should not allow any situation to distract us from the most important thing in our life, which is Jesus Christ. We need to be like Mary in Luke 10: 42 and choose the best thing which is to have a relationship with God. We must identify that thing which distracts us from our focus in God, either we remove, change, or even get rid of it and be focused on things that will make us heaven bound.
According to the book of John 17:4 Jesus Christ said “I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do”. When Jesus was in the world His focus was to do the work of His Father. When we are distracted from God, we must have genuine repentance and make a U-turn from anything that distracts our focus on God. We must ensure to be focused and not be distracted from our Christian journey. The important thing to us Christians, is our eternal life. Let us therefore fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2). Stay connected! Stay focused! Stay blessed! Shalom!!!
