Psalm 27.4 says ONE THING I ask from the Lord - this only do I seek - that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.
And Jesus to Martha in Luke 10.42 - but few things are needed - or indeed - ONLY ONE…
What if we lived this year in the sweet spot of SEEKING HIM as our ONE THING - valuing our relationship with HIM as our ONE THING? What if our passion is to live each moment of each day enjoying HIS presence as the great treasure of our lives? What if we grow in our habit of PRAISE and THANKSGIVING - so that these become our default postures? What if our friendship with HIM becomes so precious that to surrender to HIS will is our greatest joy?
If HE is our ONE THING, everything else He calls us to do will happen because worship fuels life. Then we'll be equipped and fueled as we seek HIM!

The PathwayJesus left us with a very clear purpose: make disciples. He laid it out in Matthew 28:19-20. As Christians, we're either making disciples or being discipled. Discipleship is a life long process. The disciples, that group of Jesus followers who knew him best, struggled at times to follow Him, so it stands to reason we may at times as well.

(Philippians 3.12-13)

To Live is ChristIn part 2 of our study in Philippians, Paul shows us how to have joy and contentment, regardless of our circumstances. Specifically, Paul is addressing some of the concerns of the church in Philippi. The great news, though, is that what caused Paul to have joy, no matter what, applies to us as well. It's what led him to say, "whatever happens, conduct yourself in a manner worthy of the gospel."
