First United Methodist Church-Pinellas Park
With passionate love and humble service, we will impact the world for God.
Keep the Main Thing the Main Thing
"As disciples of Jesus, the people we look to with greatest admiration are those who were single-minded in their focus...As Jesus neared the cross, he said: "But for this purpose I have come" (John 12: 27b). Jesus never swerved from his purpose, nor should we [as individuals or as a community of faith].
We know David was far from perfect, yet the scope of his life testified to his devotion to God. The New Testament remembers him as one who "served the purpose of God in his own generation" (Acts 13: 26). If the pandemic has exposed some holes in your focus, now is the time to renew your vision.
Now is not the time to be obsessed with COVID-19 news, the political scene, or other distractions from our calling. May we be single-minded in our service to Christ, resolute in our proclamation of the gospel, and keep the main thing the main thing."
