“Following Jesus and Loving People”


Growing up I remember times with my Dad in a boat. Sometimes we would go to the middle of lake to fish or just ride around. When he let me drive the boat, I remember how important it was to fix my eyes on the destination…the place on the shore where we wanted to land. Without fixing the destination, it was easy to drift off course, and even get lost.

For me today, the Word of God reveals my destination, that which I am to fix my attention and energies. While reading this past week, I felt the Lord gave me a few verses for my 2014 focus. By keeping these verses in mind, I will not drift off course and find myself lost in the world. Psalm 32:8-9 says, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.”

The Lord himself is my destination. My main responsibility each day is to look to him, listening to his word for direction, and maintaining a teachable spirit. He promised to be my counselor. I must desire his counsel and listen closely to what he says. The Christian life is not “hard” in the sense of unattainable or complicated. As we rely on the grace of God and exercise simple trust and faith, we will stay on course, one day landing on the shore to be ever with him. Keep your destination in mind!
