focus“For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified,” 1 Corinthians 2:2.

Ever have one of those days when it seems as if everything is a blur and you just can’t get things done? It becomes especially frustrating, when someone is depending on you. Then your wife says, “Focus, Michael, focus!”

Too tired … too many things to do … too distracted … too hurried … too whatever. It can be trying. Whether it is in your home or in your ministry or in both, a season of prayerful focusing provides the clearest insights.

In spirit, life, and ministry, the Lenten Season can be that centering time. Making Christ and His cross the center of our lives and ministry brings everything else into focus. Pinpointed by the Apostle Paul, Christ and His cross are meant to be our peace and purpose.

As the helplessness of man’s sinful state and the sacrificial love of Christ intersect at the Cross of Calvary, may the clarity of its focus revive your spirit and renew your ministry.
