“Put The Attention On Jesus”
There was a time in my marriage over the last few years that I had completely lost focus of how wonderful and amazing my wife is… I couldn’t help but see all of her flaws, how she nagged and fussed etc. It appeared as if that’s ALL she did… where did things change or had my perception changed? I wondered when did she ever NOT FUSS :-)?
Then I received a word from a lady at my church that had no idea the weight of what she was saying to me…"the moment that you take your eyes off of Jesus, is the moment that you see everything that is wrong around you" hmmm, so with my eyes on Jesus instead of seeing what was wrong, I saw how He was molding our marriage.
I then realized what had happened… my eyes had come off of everything that is Good and Perfect and Wonderful, only to see exactly what the enemy wanted me to see…
So with that… there’s this song that God has given me called "Put The Attention On Jesus" I believe it’s one of the most profound messages that God has ever given me because it speaks to the direction and focus of the church and body as a whole.. how we’ve gone after entertainment as our drawing card as opposed to the power that’s in believing and receiving Jesus into our hearts and allowing Him to live in and demonstrate through us. I believe that every thing that we need is in Jesus… and He desperately wants to do exploits through us… I figure we might as well Put The Attention On Jesus, He’s on His way back any way..
