Give Your Focus to The Main Thing October 24, 2022

Monday, October 24th

Take5 Devotional today written by Pastor Troy Thornton, Pastor of Development



Read today: 

Acts 20:17-21


I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.

Acts 20:21




You may have heard people say something like, “keep the main thing the main thing.”  This is one of those “captain obvious” type statements that has gravitas when you think about it.  It is so easy in life to get distracted, even by good things that take us away our focus from the best things. 

As our church launches into the next 8 years of Vison 2030, we must give our focus to the Gospel. The simple and sweet message of faith in the finished work of Jesus.  Since the fall of humankind, this has been the main thing – God’s redeeming, gracious, merciful, and critical plan of redemption.  The Gospel is the unique message of the Church for both the collective Body of Christ and each individual person. This is what saves us, binds us together, and gives us hope.  We have a responsibility to share this life-changing message with those in our lives.  We must give our focus to keep the main thing the main thing!   

FOR TODAY:  Pray for an opportunity to begin to share the Gospel with someone in your life.
