The Chaplains Corner

The Chaplains Corner

Guest blogger, Chaplain Paul, is one of the most effective chaplains in America today. He is an emergency responder to every situation.

Hey, this is the Chaplain again.

A few days ago I was talking to a fellow Christian that seemed preoccupied and a little discouraged. So I asked what was bothering them, they told me how hard they had been working at "being good" - and trying to avoid sinning. They had a long list of things they were avoiding, things they constantly reminded themselves not to do - so they could please God. Don't think about this and don't think about that. . .

After listening to them talk about their struggles with all these sinful things I suggested maybe they needed to change their focus; maybe they needed to stop focusing on what they shouldn't be doing and just focus on the Savior instead of the sin.

Hebrews 12:2 says, "We must focus on Jesus, who is the source and completeness of our faith." If we're focused on Jesus, if we're preoccupied with the Lord - His glory & grace, if we are looking into His face so that we can reflect Him, it's a lot easier to do, and say, and be what He has called us to - Ambassadors of Christ.

Where is your focus?
