Focus on Jesus
One of the measuring sticks we can use to evaluate whether or not Christ’s purposes have become our purposes is this question: “What is consuming my life?” Are you only concerned about matters regarding this temporary world, or do you have an eternal perspective? I like to think of my life as consisting of “three Ts”: Time, Talent, and Treasure. How I use the “three Ts” is a good indicator of what is important to me.
John the Baptist said, “He [Jesus] must become greater.” As we grow in Jesus, he becomes more and more important in our thinking and his agenda becomes the guiding force in our lives. As he becomes greater, the choices we make regarding our time, talent, and treasure will be dictated by his desires.
When we soak our hearts in the Word of God, we absorb those words as if we were a sponge being filled with living water. The Word of God begins to transform our thinking and we increasingly delight ourselves in the Lord rather than in the things of this world. It is through this process that Jesus becomes stronger in our lives and self becomes weaker.
Are the things that are important to Jesus becoming increasingly important to you? Make a list of the ten most important things to you right now. In what ways is Jesus influencing your list?
having our lives transformed
