In Philippians 3:13-14, Paul says,
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
The phrase I want to direct you to today is Paul’s statement, “One thing I do.” These are echoes of words King David spoke when he said, “One thing I desire,” and Jesus, who said to the rich young ruler, “There is one thing you lack.”
Then there is the blind man, who had been blind from birth, whom Jesus healed. When he was questioned, he said, “There is one thing I know: I was blind, now I see.” One thing I do; one thing I desire; one thing you lack; one thing I know.
Each of these statements points to a vital thing needed if you are to grow in your spiritual life: FOCUS.
The problem with many people is they are far too scattered. They are trying to do everything and be everything. They try to be a jack-of-all-trades and end up being a master of none.
If that describes you today, let me ask you a question: What is the one main thing that should be the focus of your life?
