Obsession?



Obsession? We grow up obsessed with many things. Whether it was cars, friends or sports, most of the time it was an obsession that wasn’t well founded. Not that it is unrealistic to want these things. The problem with obsessions is this, they just aren’t worth obsessing over.


Think about it. Obsession, like all things in life, has its bounds. Often it can lead to disappointment and dissolution. It really depends upon what the goal is.


God’s Word tells us: “Consequently, Pilate tried to release him (Jesus); but the Jews cried out, ‘If you release him, you are not a Friend of Caesar.’ Everyone who makes himself a king opposes Caesar” (John 19:12).


When we know something to be right and the truth must be told, the obsession to make sure that the truth is upheld is not only worthwhile, it’s a Christian’s obligation. We must be obsessed with it. The fact is this: knowing you are right only matters when your actions match your thoughts. When the truth is at stake obsession, may be just the fuel to keep the truth alive.


We pray. “Heavenly Father, You have glorified the name of Jesus now and forever by sending him to die on the cross. In Christ you fulfilled your perfect plan, which was the plan for our redemption. There is no greater love. Help us to never look lightly on the cross of Christ.  In Jesus name. Amen!”


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
