Week 23: Raising the Bar on “Focus”

9:1-2 NKJV “Then He (Jesus) called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.”

We are to be a witness for Christ everywhere we go. The devil wants us to keep Christ quiet to prevent the Gospel from going forward. God wants to keep us talking!

Our FOCUS determines our direction.

If we focus on how big our God is, our focus will go from:
• Jealousy to Jesus.
• Crisis to Christ.
• Our mess to our Messiah.
• Stress to Blessed.

Don’t allow our lack to get us off track! If Jesus calls us and sends us He will equip us! When we keep our focus—we will not only come to church, we will “Be the Church.”

Anticipation + Participation = Expectations Met

Matthew 14:17-20 NKJV “And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish. “He said, “Bring them here to Me.” Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. So, they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained.

Where do you need to change your focus? Do you have a mess where you need God to turn it into a miracle? Did you experience a conviction, challenge or a commitment you need to make from this devotion?
