A lot of things are happening in our world today and it’s almost as if you have to pick a side but that’s not true. As a Christian, you have been set on a path and there are no two options. It’s the way of the Lord or nothing else, we have burnt our bridges.
“When the Messiah was executed on the stake as a criminal, I was too; so that my proud ego no longer lives. But the Messiah lives in me, and the life I now live in my body I live by the same trusting faithfulness that the Son of God had, who loved me and gave himself up for me.”
When Jesus gave Himself upon the cross, He had faith in us that when we hear about Him and His love for us, we would believe in Him and spread His message. Meaning Jesus trusts us with Himself and we can’t afford to be distracted and disappoint Him.
He has given us our instruction manual for life, the Bible, which we are expected to live by, Matthew 7:2. And He has provided us with all the materials we require for life and godliness, so we don’t have any reason to be distracted.
Keep fueling your zeal for the Gospel. Don’t let anything or anyone distract you from your primary assignment. Jesus said “Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.” John 15:20-21
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
It doesn’t matter the distractions, keep going in the way of the Lord cause you’re victorious all the time. Glory!
Maintain your focus. Be the best of you that you can be for the Lord. Keep spreading the Gospel, Keep being active in your local church, Keep up your good work, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving, Colossians 3:24.
“We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up.”
“I am saying this because I want to help you. I am not trying to put restrictions on you. Instead, I want you to do what is right and proper, and to give yourselves completely to the Lord's service without any distractions.”
1 Corinthians 7:35
