Friend, your ATTENTION is very important. It can make or break your relationship and faithfulness to JESUS.
Sadly, many give their ATTENTION to their evil desires and the things of the world, and so are separated from GOD.
The LORD JESUS knows those who pay attention to him and those who don’t. Remember the two sisters, Martha and Mary (Luke 10:38-42). Mary took her seat at the the Lord’s feet and gave attention to his words. It is written, “But Martha was very busy and distracted with all of her serving responsibilities; and she approached Him and said, “Lord, is it of no concern to You that my sister has left me to do the serving alone? Tell her to help me and do her part.” But the Lord replied to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered and anxious about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part [that which is to her advantage], which will not be taken away from her.”
Friend, giving the LORD JESUS all your attention means choosing the one thing that is necessary and most important for salvation, redemption, eternal life and peace with God and this good BLESSING will NEVER be taken away from those who choose to give their FULL AND CONTINUAL ATTENTION to JESUS. Yet many today are giving their full and continual attention to sexual sin, materialism and all that is in the world and is passing away.
Friend, why give your attention to that which is passing away? Are you not aware that it is written and remains written, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.” Luke 21:33
Be wise like Mary who sat at the feet of the LORD JESUS giving careful attention to his words, for his words will NEVER pass away, neither will those who believe in HIM.
I have REVEALED TO YOU THE SECRET. Those who have ears, let them hear.It is written and remains written, “And every soul who does not give attention to that prophet, will be cut off from among the people.” Acts 3:23
If you refuse to give attention to JESUS, you will give attention to another who is the father of lies and has many evil agents operating in the world. Remember Simon the Sorcerer! Many paid attention to him because he mystified and dazzled them with his magic.
It is written,
Acts 8:9-11 Amplified Bible (AMP)
9 Now there was a man named Simon, who previously practiced magic in the city and amazed the people of Samaria, claiming to be someone great. 10 They all paid [a great deal of] attention to him, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is what is called the Great Power of God!” 11 They were paying attention to him because for a long time he had mystified and dazzled them with his magic.
It is also written,
2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 Amplified Bible (AMP)
8 Then the lawless one [the Antichrist] will be revealed and the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of His mouth and bring him to an end by the appearance of His coming. 9 The coming of the [Antichrist, the lawless] one is through the activity of Satan, [attended] with great power [all kinds of counterfeit miracles] and [deceptive] signs and false wonders [all of them lies], 10 and by unlimited seduction to evil and with all the deception of wickedness for those who are perishing, because they did not welcome the love of the truth [of the gospel] so as to be saved [they were spiritually blind, and rejected the truth that would have saved them]. 11 Because of this God will send upon them a misleading influence, [an activity of error and deception] so they will believe the lie, 12 in order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe the truth [about their sin, and the need for salvation through Christ], but instead took pleasure in unrighteousness.
So be careful that you give your full attention to THE TRUTH AND THE LIGHT WHICH IS JESUS or you will believe the lie which is satan.
Choose today whom you give your ATTENTION to either JESUS or the wicked one.
Those who want to give ATTENTION TO JESUS, let us REPENT RIGHT AWAY.
Say, LORD JESUS, I am a sinner. I have given attention to the lie. I repent of giving my attention to evil desires and the perishing things of the world. I reject and renounce the lie. I reject and renounce the darkness which is satan. I reject and renounce any covenants I made with the darkness, knowingly and unknowingly. I CHOOSE to give my FULL ATTENTION ONLY TO YOU LORD JESUS. I receive you in my heart JESUS. Be my LORD AND SAVIOR. BE MY LIGHT AND TRUTH. BE MY ETERNAL LIFE AND PLEASE REMOVE ALL MY SINS AND WASH ME WITH YOUR BLOOD. Please write and keep my name in THE BOOK OF LIFE. Remember me when you establish your KINGDOM. Baptize me this day with your HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.
Lord bless all who have repented here with eternal life in KING JESUS MIGHTY NAME. Help those who need water baptism to receive true water baptism, to fulfill all righteousness. AMEN.
