Fixed // Romans 12:2 (MSG)
This week we spent time looking at loving God wholeheartedly by giving Him our complete attention. I hope you found these writings as helpful as I did preparing them. I want to close out this week’s journey by looking at The Message rendering of Romans 12:2, “Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it.” The idea of fixing your attention on God naturally means focused. What if we were to play around with it, though, and think about a repaired attention? That really hits home with me. There are so many diversions and distractions that easily grab our attention. Some of those things might even be good things, but are they great things? Are they God’s things? What needs to be repaired so you can see things with godly eyes? When you see those thing properly, it will change everything…beginning with how you see the world.
