One Thing

Last Sunday at Celebration Community Church as we began a new series called “Small Things-BIG Difference” we looked at the importance of the “one thing”. Throughout the Bible we see that by focusing on the one thing amazing things can be accomplished.  
One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. Psalm 27:4

David the author of that Psalm had a real insight into who God was and set his heart to follow him. This means that David's heart was totally focused on who God was. He was locked in to what was right. As a result we are told that David was” a man after God’s own heart”  

Paul made a similar statement in the book of Philippians: "One thing I do, forgetting the things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus" Phil.3:13-14
Paul had decided on one thing, that he wasn’t going to let his  past define his future.

One thing. Everybody has the one thing in his or her life. I ask you: what is that one thing for you. What is your clear focus in life? Our greatest danger in life is permitting the urgent things to crowd out the important; to fail to live by a clear set of priorities. A popular adage is “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing”. There is wisdom in that.  What is your one thing? 

Your pastor and partner in ministry,
