The biggest threat for a child of God is to be distracted from Jesus Christ. Christians talk about their relationship with Jesus, but very few of them do have any relationship with Jesus.
We must not allow ourselves to be distracted from Jesus Himself, from our communication with Him, our contact with Him, through the Holy Spirit that He gives to dwell in us.
It is easy to get distracted, even by good things, religious things. Many Christians occupy themselves with church activities and with Bible studies, but they have no relationship with Jesus. Their mind is occupied with other things.
Our mind must be on Jesus. We must always be praying in our mind and maintain contact with Him. It is only when we are focused on Jesus that the Holy Spirit will guide us. If we get distracted by other things we will lose the way, because Jesus is the way.
It is not about the Bible. It is not about the things that we want to do for Jesus; it is those things that His Holy Spirit inspires in us, that which He speaks in us and to us, those things that He tells us to do, the revelation that He gives us. It is about our relationship with Him, in prayer, our contact with Him, our spirit being one with His Spirit, the Holy Spirit that He gives to dwell in us. If we lose that contact we are in grave danger because then we are not doing the will of God any more, we are distracted, and we get busy with unfruitful works and even with sin.
We must stay focused on Jesus, pray always, that we do not fall into temptation. If our focus is on ourselves, what we are trying to do or what we are trying to achieve for Jesus, then we lose focus of Him. But if our focus is on Him, then He guides us and He enables us to do His will.
We must not allow ourselves to be distracted from Jesus. We must always be praying and listening, tuned in to the Holy Spirit that He gives to dwell in us.
May Jesus bless you.
