There is no greater example of having a single purpose and goal in life than the Lord Jesus. He made this point very clear in John 6:38, “I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will but the will of Him who sent Me.” The will of His Father was totally supreme. It was the ONE THING that governed Jesus’ life from beginning to end, including going to the cross; “Nevertheless, not My will, but Yours be done” (Luke 22:42).
The question for us is: what helps and enables us to maintain this singleness of purpose? Again, we look at the life of Jesus as a dependent man, as we should be. He maintained this ONE THING by “rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, He departed and went out to a desolate place, and there He prayed” (Mark 1:35). Notice the priority Jesus gave to this habit:
1. His communion with the Father had to be the first thing in His day.
2. He went to a place where there were no distractions.
3. He spent the time in fellowship with the Father.
KEEPING THE ONE THING THE ONE THING can only be maintained through a close walk with the Lord and by intimate conversations with Him. Not only must we keep a single attitude, an undivided heart, but also a deep love for the Savior.
Are you KEEPING THE ONE THING THE ONE THING?
