Do you feel distracted? Overwhelmed? Confused? Busy?
Between work and school, carpooling and chores, your schedule probably feel so chaotic that you’re left gasping for air at the end of the day.
How can you possibly decide where to invest your time and energy when your entire world appears to “be in commotion“?
The Main Thing
At some point, we will all have to take a step back and really “zero in” on what the main thing is at that time.
Take basketball, for example.
Whenever we practice, we do so with the intent to win the next game. That’s the main thing. Perhaps we work on our passing; or maybe we work on our shots. We practice and practice until we see consistent improvement, all with the the main thing in mind.
When it comes game time and we’re out on the court, we know we have to “zero in” and focus in on the main thing. Everything we do during the game is centered around the win. We use pep talks and routines, audience members and teammates, to keep ourselves focused throughout the entire game, knowing that the opponent is tirelessly searching for a weak spot in our game to break through. He’ll smack-talk or wave his arms..anything he can do to distract us enough to steal our focus from the main thing and succeed at his own game.
In life, Satan is the opponent and The Main Thing is our Savior, Jesus Christ.
In his latest full-length talk, The Main Thing: Keeping Your Eyes Focused On Christ motivational speaker John Bytheway teaches us how to filter out the distractions of the adversary. Using his uncanny humor and fun personality, John reminds us how keeping our focus on Christ will not only strengthen our faith, but will also help us weather any opposition we have to face.
Powered By The Son
The sun is one of the most powerful sources of energy in the world. Solar power not only can help plants to grow, but it can be concerted into electricity to power cars, lights, pools, heaters, and even homes!
Though the sun is such a powerful energy, John Bytheway suggests that TRUE power comes the Son.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, can help us through any hurt, any trial, any heartache. When we seek to be Powered By The Son, we can seek to face His light and position ourselves to be powered by His eternal source.
