It's All About Jesus

Description

Focusing on the Lord instead of on ourselves will allow forgiveness and healing.

John 3:30

He must increase, but I must decrease. NKJV

This saying was true for John the Baptist when speaking of Jesus and it is true for us today. As Christians, we should be learning about the Lord. What does the Lord want? What does He desire and how can I serve Him? Instead we often think: "What can God do for me?" We ask, "What can the church do for me?" or "Why don't they understand it's all about me?"

Focusing on the Lord, instead of ourselves will allow for forgiveness and healing. As we shift our gaze away from our needs and our wounds, we will experience the spiritual things of life - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control and the practical things of life. In that moment, unspeakable joy and peace beyond all understanding will be ours. Choose Jesus today...

Life Lesson: It's all about Jesus.

Dear God, 
Thank You for loving me so much You sent Jesus to die on the cross for my sins. Forgive me for times when I've lost focus and become self absorbed. Empower me to let go of my own will and seek Yours. I pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.
