Keep Christ your focus

Did you start yet? You know. Have you started your conversation with Jesus?

That is precisely what He wants us to do.

In the Garden of Gethsemane, God the Father offers Jesus his Son an invitation. The love, the trust, and the friendship that God once enjoyed with his people got totaled through the sin of Adam and Eve. And no one of us has the ability to buy God something to make up for what he lost. Besides, God doesn't want anything to fix the relationship. All he wants is to enjoy with us once again that relationship of friendship that we cut off and said no through our sin.  But as long as we remained trapped in sin, we can't restart that pure relationship of love with God. Only one human being has the power to restore that friendship: and that is Jesus Christ.

Let Christ dominate our lives. He is the sovereign in our life. Don't let worry, anger, hurt, anxiety, vengeance, wealth, alcohol dominate over Jesus. Only the Lord should dominate. If anything else dominates, something is out of whack in our life.
