What do you focus on every day? Some things that come to mind might be school, work, or family. These are the things that we tend to focus most on every day. While these things are very important in our lives here on earth, there is one thing that outweighs them all. Christ. With all the distractions and temptations around us we often lose our focus on Christ. Instead of giving in to these distractions and temptations, we must concentrate on the everlasting life that Christ has won for us and focus on Him.
It is so easy to stress about earthly things. We get so caught up in worries that we put Christ aside. Jeremiah 29:13 says “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” God tells us in this verse that whenever we seek Him (in prayer), He will be there to help. This verse also tells us that we must seek him with all our heart. This means that we should focus on Him always. There is nothing more important than focusing on Christ. Focusing on Christ doesn’t have to be hard. Praying, reading scripture, and devotions are easy ways to focus more on Christ every day.
We should always turn to scripture when we need a reminder to focus on Christ. If we focus on Christ and have faith in Him, we will receive the everlasting life that He has promised to us. There is no earthly reward that can compare to being in heaven with Christ.
