Why is making God your one focus in life so important?
What or who you focus on determines your attitude here on earth and where you will spend eternity. When you focus on anything or anyone other than God, you can miss His great love and His will for your life.
Knowing God – really knowing Him, not just knowing about Him – and focusing on Him gives your life meaning and purpose.
You are God’s creation and He loves you – so much that even before Adam and Eve chose to sin in the Garden of Eden, He provided a way back to Him through His only Son, Jesus Christ. If you recognize the reality of sin in your life, repent of that sin, and invite Jesus Christ to be your Savior and Lord, you become a child of God and will live with Him forever.
There is only one way to know God and that is through Jesus. As the Living Word, He expressed the love of God through His sinless life, sacrificial death and miraculous resurrection. God’s written word, the Bible, tells us about His love and the grace He offers to each of us through Jesus.
Grace is free to you, but it cost God great pain and suffering. You and I do not deserve His love – grace is unmerited favor – but because God loves you so much, He suffered in order to offer you a way to be part of His eternal family. Not everyone accepts His gift of grace. Those who reject Him will be separated from Him for eternity.
That’s why having one focus on God is so important. It is a matter of life or death.
If you have never asked Jesus to forgive you of your sin and trusted Him as your Savior and Lord, I would plead with you to do so now. I would love to hear from you and encourage you to find a Bible believing church and tell the pastor. He will help you grow.
