Good morning.

Looking at the life of Jesus Christ, there are 2 things stand out.

• He focused on what mattered most. Jesus had a goal, knew what it was, and moved toward it with powerful resolve. Luke describes Jesus’ sense of focus like this: “As the time drew near for his return to heaven, he moved steadily onward toward Jerusalem with an iron will” (Luke 9:51 TLB). Jesus knew he was going to Jerusalem to die. He was determined to do what God called him to do. The key to effectiveness is focusing like a laser on what God has called you to do.

• He spent time alone with God. The Bible says it was Jesus’ habit to pray (Luke 22:39). Even Jesus needed time in his life to renew, reflect, and recharge. Jesus was convinced that no matter how busy he was, he needed to take time to be alone with God and pray. We all need this habit in our lives. Colossians 2:7 says,Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him” (NLT). It’s easy to let your time with the Lord slide when your life gets busy, but if you plant your life in Christ every morning, you’ll soon find your stress level dropping.

Whether we have the gift to lead or not, let's emulate the example of our Lord on what we do today.
