Are You Focused?
Salt & Light Volume II, Issue 26 by D. Scott Prindle

"I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:14)


Reaching Your Goals
When I was a young boy I wanted to become a great skier. That became my primary focus in life for the next twenty years.

I set some goals along the way... high school Ski Meister, college championship, winning a major ski race, etc. Then came the challenges... a lack of natural talent, finances, injuries.

The key to overcoming and realizing my goals was focus. How do you get and stay focused? The apostle Paul sums it up in Philippians 3:7-14

Discern Your Distractions
What things cherished (good & bad) keep you from pressing towards your goals. Be willing to leave them behind. Focus in on the goal, not the distractions.

Discover Your Passion
What is the most urgent, most important pursuit in your life? Let go of nice things that don't matter so you can do the one thing that does matter. Prioritize you energy (time & resources).

Determine Your Devotion
What will you give to get what you want? Paul gave anything it took: his freedom, his reputation, his life. He was devoted to Christ and following His example.

Jesus was focused. He was and is 100% devoted to you. He loved you all the way to and through the cross so you can reach the prize of your upward call of God in Christ. Focus!

Love Never Fails,
