Advent is among my favorite seasons as I consider the wonder of a God who is omnipotent, omniscient, and yet mindful of me. This same God who has stooped to take on flesh for the search and rescue of His children even if not yet aware of His great love from them. The gift of Jesus, Messiah and Savior of mankind, demands a response. Love that is not embraced cannot be reciprocated. So here’s my question, what keeps you on point; what’s the one thing? For Paul, it seemed to be the gift of praying without ceasing and living the Gospel out with and without words. I am moved by God’s love letter to us (the Bible) today and this account from Jeremiah,
Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. NIV
I am resolved to the KISS method, “keep it simple steve” 🙂 Will you make this prayer yours as well? Dear Lord Jesus, please make us people of a single focus; make us disciples of Jesus and hold us in loving accountability when we stop only at being believers. Most of all help us stay on point in the one thing, keeping it simple, embracing your love moment by moment, and giving it away to others every chance we get. Amen.
