Think About It

This One Thing
by: Pastor B.J. Knefley

No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

Philippians 3:13-14

Have you ever considered that life has something more than what you’re experiencing? I know that sometimes we see life as being like a shot gun. We pull up and shoot and hope that we hit something, anything, that will have meaning and substance.

I’ve talked with young people that have hopes of college and careers but come away wondering if they have any real goals or objectives. Is life about the things that we want or is there a higher purpose to which we are oblivious to? Is it possible that there is something greater than being a teacher, or doctor? Is it possible that we are here on this earth for one thing and that our very existence depends upon it?

Joseph of the Old Testament seems to have had a higher purpose than just the events of his life. True, his life was full of tragedy, but in the end it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that the events of his life brought him into a position of great power. So much so that he become the savior of his people. He even saw that his brothers’ selling him into slavery, as bad as it was, was ultimately the design of God, (Genesis 50:20).

Moses was a man who’s calling was to lead his people out of Egypt. Although it took many years to come together, we know that eventually Moses fulfilled this one purpose to which he was called. Even Jesus Christ himself was called to fulfill one purpose, which was culminated in the cross. It seems that there are many who are focused upon completing this one thing to which they were called. Is it possible that we too are called to this one thing, whatever that might be? Think about it.
