1 Timothy 6:11-16 (NKJV)
11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 13 I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, 14 that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ’s appearing, 15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
Where are your thoughts? Are they upon the love of Jesus? Are they upon your desire to walk with Him daily and spend eternity with Him? He paid the price for you to have that opportunity. He loves you so accept His grace, mercy and love. Focus not on this world, but upon Him. Spend time with Him in prayer and in the Scriptures. There you will see His love, know His love and grow in His love. Living in His strength, walking in His love, and running the race with Him will truly shape you into becoming all that He desires.
We are not to live for now, but for eternity. We are not to live for this world, but for Him. We are to love Him and live for Him. He has so much to show us and so much for others to see of His love through us. So, live with an eternal focus and that come through focusing on Jesus.
Father: Thank You for Your love, mercy and grace. Help me to focus on Your Son Jesus as He shows me the way.
In His Holy Name we pray, Amen.
