Believers are called upon in the last days to focus on the things that really matter for their life and calling in Christ. We must remember that everything else changes and has an ending. By focusing on the one who has called us, Jesus Christ the Author and Finisher of our Faith, we will always be at our best in everything we endeavor to achieve in this life! The devil and his demons uses many distraction to keep us off track or to get us to drift away from our destiny of faith! He uses many things that weigh heavily on us everyday to discourage us from setting our hopes on the good things the Father has prepare for us.
Hebrews 2:1 (NKJV Strong's Bible)
1 Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.
Hebrews 2:1 (NLT)
1 So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it.
Hebrews 2:1 (NIV)
Warning to Pay Attention
1 We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.
Hebrews 12:1-2 (NKJV Strong's,)
1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Galatians 3:1-9 (NKJV Strong's,)
1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified? 2 This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? 4 Have you suffered so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain? 5 Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?— 6 just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” 7 Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.” 9 So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
Galatians 1:6-7 (NLT)
There Is Only One Good News
6 I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News 7 but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ.
John 3:14-15 (NKJV Strong's,)
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
Numbers 21:4-9 (NKJV Strong's,)
The Bronze Serpent
4 Then they journeyed from Mount Hor by the Way of the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom; and the soul of the people became very discouraged on the way. 5 And the people spoke against God and against Moses: “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread.” 6 So the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and many of the people of Israel died.
7 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you; pray to the Lord that He take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people.
8 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” 9 So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.
1 Peter 1:23-25 (NKJV Strong's,)
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 24 because
“All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
25 But the word of the Lord endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.
Isaiah 26:3 (NKJV Strong's,)
3 You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
