Keeping Your Focus Right

By: Mary Felde
From: March 2010

Where we put our focus makes a huge difference in our lives.  Col. 3:1-2 encourages us, “Seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of the father. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”

We are to set our minds on Christ - what He has done and who He is in us and for us. When we look at ourselves and others, we see lack and insufficiencies, but when we look at Him, there is neither lack nor insufficiency.

He is our righteousness, sanctification and wisdom. He is our faith, strength and ability. He is our life, hope and provider, and He is our hero! A friend of me once said, “I don’t believe in superstars. There is only one star, and He lives in each of us.” That’s true! Jesus is our Star, and since He lives in us we can all go out and make a difference in this world.
