A Change of Focus

A Change of Focus

Think about the impact of the early church! Abandoning self-centered, worldly perspectives, they focused on living in light of Jesus’ resurrection. Through their witness, people’s lives were changed, transformed. Jesus continues to call us to create Jesus-centered communities in our homes and churches, to live as salt and light in the marketplace and the community-at-large. When we do, He is exalted through our lives and leadership. What is your focus in leading others?

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles.—Acts 2:42-43

Prayer: Jesus, change our focus. Change our mindset from personal attainment to personal contribution, from competing against others to collaborating with them. Transform us and how we see our roles within our families and churches and in the marketplace. Be exalted in and through us, we pray in Your name, amen.
