Hebrews 12:1 12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us
Why should we focus on Jesus?
- Doves eyes can only focus on one object at a time: This is what we should do, focus only on God
- God will reveal the purpose we have here on earth
- If you know your purpose you can finish your race
- You will grow spiritually
- Like David, you can achieve miraculous things
How can you loose the focus on God?
- If you focus on yourself
- If God corrects you, you run away
- if the flesh dictates your life
- if you idolize things
- e.g. you asked God for children
- when you got children, you idolize them and prioritize them to God
- if you keep hatred and un-forgiveness
What are the consequences of loosing focus?
- You will loose your power
- you will get overwhelmed and distressed by small things
How can you regain focus?
- Cry out to Jesus and ask for help
- be in God’s presence and he will take the storm away (Matthew 14:28-30)
