Have you ever felt like you couldn’t see the finish line? As competitors, we can become so focused on a particular task that we lose focus.
1. Have you ever lost sight of your target during the workout?
2. How did you gain it back?
However, the worst kind of focus we can lose is our spiritual vision. When we become too consumed in today’s culture, we see Christ-centered things with less clarity.
Think about Christ’s disciples in the boat fishing. They had fished and fished but didn’t have any results. It wasn’t like they could just go to the grocery store and pick up a salmon, either. They relied on fish to survive.
Jesus told Simon to cast his net into deep water. And then what happened? Scripture says that the nets were so full of fish the boats nearly sank! “When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.”
The apostles decided to let go and trust that God could see what they needed to do. They were blind on how to fix their problem. But because they trusted in Jesus, they were able to see the clear solution.
1. Write down what you think it means to be spiritually blind.
2. Commit 2 Corinthians 4:4 to memory.
