Focus on JESUS Alone

11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves 
to be dead indeed unto sin, 
but alive unto God 
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:11 
King James Version

Why is it important to focus on Jesus alone?

Because the world can easily sway us, and we can lose our soul.

Because the world belongs to the fallen one, seeking to destroy our soul, and to mock God, with that soul he has destroyed.

Because our salvation lies in Jesus alone.

If we are to be truly alive in CHRIST, we must be dead to sin.

Only through Jesus, can we have the strength to defy the fallen one.

Today, more than ever, we must focus on JESUS alone. 

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 
seek those things which are above, 
where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, 
not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, 
and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, 
who is our life, 
shall appear, 
then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Colossians 3:1-4 
King James Version

The fallen one makes sure the world has many distractions.

It is so subtle, with layers upon layers of distraction -- and destruction.

Unless your heart is with Christ, and you read SCRIPTURE, you will not know what layers those are.

FOCUS on Jesus alone and He will show you the way back to GOD.

Seek to have a fellowship with the LORD Jesus.

Make time early each morning, to listen to Jesus. 

Keep your soul quiet, and let the LORD speak to you. 

At the end of the day, pray to thank, and to have Jesus speak to your soul once more, sealing your soul with Him.

When you do all that, the Holy SPIRIT of God will teach you EVERYTHING about Jesus.

Only through a sincere heart can we invite the LORD and the SPIRIT, giving GOD great joy at our attention and desire to know Him.

The presence of JESUS will give you the strength to fight the battles you may face each day.

Time with Jesus gives you courage, taking away your fears, or wrong notions.

Time with Jesus will pull you away from sin, focusing on repairing that relationship with Him.

You know you have become JESUS' own when you lose all sense of self, ambition, earthly desires and passions.

Only a love for God remains.

Listen to this soothing Charles Stanley video which will help you meditate upon the LORD Jesus. As Dr. Stanley says:

"It is hard to be quiet, in a world so loud."

Only with a quiet, humble, teachable, joyful, and eager heart can you begin to know the Lord.

Please start now, before it's too late.

Let JESUS be your ANCHOR.
