I heard a message this past week from Bobby Hughes. “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple” Psalm 27:4.
Bobby asked, “What’s your ‘one thing’?” I had to think, if it’s not God, then what is my ‘one thing’? Am I totally satisfied in Christ? David’s desire for the Lord was unquestionable; is mine? I began to ponder this question while sitting in the pew last Sunday and today I am still examining myself to find that ‘one thing’. I love thought-provoking questions that cause me to really look at my heart and examine my life because the process draws me closer to the Lord in the end. We probably all have something in our lives that drive us each day. We may have a goal we are working toward or a position we are trying to achieve but at the end of it all, we find another goal and new heights to climb. Today is the last day of 2015 and people everywhere are making some kind of New Year resolution. Many want to be healthier, lose weight, make a career change, get organized, and thousands of other personal goals that we are committing to changing in 2016. My commitment (resolution) is to be sure that my ‘one thing’ is the only One Thing that matters; Christ.
