“Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet: but one thing I do:…” (Philippians 3:13a).
Success in the life of faith demands focus. The problem isn’t necessarily one of desire, but rather, diversion. Few of us can say, “this one thing I do.” Our time, attention, and resources are diverted in a dozen different directions. While we are involved in a number of good things, these can easily distract us from the best thing — our commitment to Christ. When He is the focal point, everything else becomes peripheral.
