“Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess” (Hebrews 3:1).

The phone rings, a child cries, a sudden noise, a beep, a chime, what distracts you? Let’s face it, we live in a world full of distractions, full of things vying for our attention and stealing our concentration. How do you deal with them? Distractions are all around us.

There’s a greater distraction that each of us faces every day of our lives. Our sinful nature loves to tell us there’s a thousand “better” things to do than spend some undisturbed time with the Lord. The devil loves to whisper in our ears that what’s on the facebook news feed or what’s on TV is more important than what’s in God’s Word. How do we deal with those distractions?

God tells us: fix your thoughts on Jesus. Fix your thoughts on the one who was never distracted from His mission to save you. Fix your thoughts on the one who faithfully made it a habit to spend time alone with God in your place. Fix your thoughts on the one whose blood has washed you clean from every time you’ve been sinfully distracted!

Joyful to focus on my Savior, just like you,
