Christ our Goal (and something to pray for)

A revelation of Christ. That is our simple devotion. Nothing else can be built on anything other than Him.

This may sound elementary, but it is the goal of our faith, the purpose of our salvation, and the very reason we were created. It’s when we decide that Christ’s life, death, resurrection, impartation of the Holy Spirit, and the atonement of our sins, is all too elementry and simple, that we begin to lose what we were called to. 

Once we make that subtle move of, “Okay, I’m saved now. I have the Holy Spirit, and I pray and read Scripture, now it’s time to get on to greater and greater things,” do we begin to lose ground and begin to chip away at our foundation which is Christ Jesus.

Many things have a tendency to take our eyes off the Lord and direct our attention to these “greater things”: gifts is a big one ministry, evangelism, even knowledge of the Scriptures, too. If your daily Bible reading isn’t pointing you to Christ, but instead pointing you back to yourself, then something is missing. We can never go beyond the foundations of our faith.

What a blessed thing it would be if the entire Body of Christ across the globe took her eyes off of the lesser things, even the noble things, even the right things, and instead, turned her attention to her real goal, Christ. What if for just one day? That would be a true demonstration to “power and principalities”.

That is the Church’s high calling, not evangelism, not gifts, not even ministry, but a captured and occupied heart. Occupied with the heart and thoughts of God above her own. God is ready, but is she?

Please pray for the Bride of Christ, that she may fall in love with her Lord again.

  1. Is Jesus Christ enough? Most likely many would answer yes quickly, but according to our focus, our attention, our desires, is He really?

    If we all agree that our Lord Jesus is enough for us, then why, why is it that we keep looking away from Him? Do we just want His “things” or do we want Jesus Christ Himself? We keep looking at His things, those endless its. We focus on what belongs to Him instead Him. What do you think our Lord Jesus feels when we look past Him to look at His belongings?

    I pray all of us to “hear” Him and then all of us turn around to see Him who is our Lord Jesus Christ, Himself.

  2. I read this article again and I got to thinking about how it is said, the people perish without vision. Our focus dictates our vision. Our vision is limited only by our focus. If we focus on things of Christ, they are just that, things. Jesus Christ is All! What an unsearchable Word, All. If we focus on the Person Jesus Christ Himself, we have an eternity of vision within Him who is endless. Our minds and hearts cannot fathom Him who is majestic Beauty. He never begins and never ends; those everlasting riches we seek are the Person, Lord Jesus Himself. ALL!

    Yes bother, imagine for now, but one day everyone everywhere will see Jesus Christ, Himself. It is not a dream, because He who is All, has spoken. What a Day that will be huh bro?
