The importance of keeping your focus on Jesus Christ
March 26, 2012
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.
1 Corinthians 9:24
Satchel Paige, the great baseball pitcher, once said, “When you’re running a race, don’t look back because somebody is probably gaining on you!” If you spend your life looking at others, if you’re just running the race for the accolades and the attention that others may give you, you’re going to be defeated.
If you look at the devil, you’ll to be distressed. Now, I think we need to be aware of the devil and we need to know who he is. But some people get so wrapped up in the devil they take their eyes off Jesus!
And in much the same way, if you look at other people, you’ll be disappointed because you’ll spend your life comparing yourself to how this or that person lives instead of focusing on how God wants you to live.
But if you look at Jesus, you’ll never fail. He’s the one who is your true example. So, as you live the Christian life, keep your eyes focused upon Jesus because eternal life with him is the prize at the end of the race!
AS YOU LIVE THE CHRISTIAN LIFE, KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON JESUS, NOT OTHERS.

Understand what’s visible by unveiling the Invisible!
While so many people today only focus on what’s visible, there’s an invisible realm that’s just as real and just as active as the physical world you see.
Yet as you go about your daily life, it can be easy to forget that truth, which puts you right in the crosshairs of the evil one.
In this eye-opening 10-message series called Invisible, you’ll come along with me as I exploresuch topics as the existence of angels, the battle for your mind, and what heaven is really like. After hearing it, you’ll be better equipped to have real victory in the spiritual realm!
