Focus on Jesus

Many Christian believers focus on all the wrong things and that is why they are losers, they do not have victory over sin, satan and the flesh. They cannot stop sinning, they cannot resist temptation, they have no self-control.. They are driven by their fleshly desires that cause them to sin and get into trouble all the time and will eventually cause them to end up in hell.

These Christian believers, who are some of them very serious, focus on various things. Some are preachers, evangelists, pastors, church leaders, they focus on building churches. Others are church members who ardently support the church, do Bible study, attend motivational speeches and conferences, do charity work, go on mission trips, give vast amounts of money to churches and missions, but they are still losers, sinners driven by their own lusts. impulses, insights, ideals and opinions.  Are they pleasing to God?  Do they bring glory to Jesus? Is their fruit pleasing to God? No, because their fruit is bad.

We can only bear good fruit if we remain IN Christ. We can only do the will of God if we follow and obey Jesus. "Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God."

Those who are in the flesh, going after the desires, impulses, logic and lusts of the flesh cannot please God. They can also not overcome sin, defeat satan and control their flesh.

The only way to be pleasing to God is to follow and obey Jesus, to be led by the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit will teach you all things, will guide you into doing the will of God, following His plan, will lead you to victory and fruitfulness for the kingdom of God. Without Jesus we can do nothing. Without His Holy Spirit guiding us, we are LOST.

Our focus must be with Jesus. Our fellowship must be with Him. If we stay in fellowship with Jesus, follow and obey Him, we will overcome, sin satan and the flesh, we will be victorious.

Submit fully to Jesus. Repent of sin and your own selfish ways, go after Jesus. Obey His words and teachings as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Repent, stop sinning. stop going after your own desires, be baptized in water and seek Jesus in prayer. commit to be pleasing to Him Him every day, stay focused on Him and He will fill you with His wisdom, guidance and understanding. He will give His Holy Spirit to be in and with you, to stay with you so that you can do His will and be victorious, pleasing to Him, bear good fruit and bring glory to God.

Focus on Jesus, follow and obey Him and you will overcome.

May Jesus bless you.
