  • A Proper Focus

    I lift up my eyes to You, O You Whose throne is in the heavens. Psalms 123:1 (NLV) Much of the Book of Psalms is about gaining the true perspective and focusing our energies in the right direction. With that said, Psalm Chapter 123 gets right to the point of the matter.   Read More

    “I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection....” – Philippians 3:10 If I asked you the purpose for which God made you, what might you say?

  • Making an Impact

    "Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning." — Proverbs 9:9 When we talk about an impact in scientific terms, we typically are referring to a high force or shock of some kind, such as the collision of a meteor, asteroid, or comet with Earth. That, we all agree, would make a tremendous impact! But how can we impact someone's life in a way that would make such a difference it could be described in a similar fashion?   Read More

What’s Your Purpose?

“I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection....” – Philippians 3:10

If I asked you the purpose for which God made you, what might you say? You might give a lot of answers that required some action on your part. However, the simplest answer to that question relates to one primary thing: fellowship. The most important thing God desires from us today is to have a deep and intimate fellowship with each of us.

The apostle Paul said he wanted to know Christ, and by knowing Christ he could experience the power of His resurrection. I find this to be the hardest thing for many of us workplace believers to do. So often it is much easier to be busy with the urgent (or even Christian) activity than spending quiet moments before the Lord. Before we realize it, days have passed since our last quiet time with Jesus.

Jesus understood how important quiet moments were with the Father. “After He had dismissed them, He went up on a mountainside by Himself to pray. When evening came, He was there alone” (Mt. 14:23). The more mature I become in my relationship with the Lord, the more precious this time becomes to me. It is a time I look forward to almost daily. It offers me a time to reflect, to share my concerns with my Lord, and to hear Him speak. In the last few years I have begun prayer walks, which accomplish three things: fellowship, prayer, and exercise. It has changed my prayer life. I have come to understand that Jesus views us as His friend and He wants to spend time with us. We are depriving Him of His time when we put Him aside for the urgent. An interesting thing happens when we make prayer a priority: Urgent things seem to wane as we focus on Him. He makes all these other things fall into place.

Are you taking the time to get to know Him today?
