God is to be our focus

There is an air of change in the wind. A change that Christianity can say is for the better.
However, that does not mean to be less vigilant. In fact it is just the opposite.
Too long the Christian community took our place in this nation for granted. As a result sin is on an up rise. That which is wrong and evil has become welcome and commonplace. This has not changed, nor do I see it going away anytime soon.
Within our elementary schools, boys and girls are confused about their very sex. All due to a constant onslaught from those that live in sin and desires all others to partake of their sorrow and damnation. Christians are still not allowed to talk freely in schools or in fact most of society without fear of reprisal from those who embrace sin.
Just because the winds have changed for the moment. Does not mean they turn once again against us. In fact the odds are still in favor of those who live in sin over those who strive to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.
It is due to taking things for granted that allowed the murderer of the unborn. Owing to not staying vigilant it allowed Obama to come to power, which resulted in the birth of ISIS. Due to not keeping our focus upon God sinners lifestyles were shoved upon those that stated they did not want it where they lived.
We cannot stop praising God. We cannot stop praying. We must take action in the world to reclaim this nation for God. To take it away from those who embrace and cherish sin.
Do not sit back just because things look better, for as long as the core is still corrupt. It will fester to the surface once again.

The distraction merchants

These are those that cause you not to place God at the center of your life. They cause you to think of you and of them, but not God.
They come in the form of music, television, movies, books, sports and themselves. They tell you to do as they do. To live as they live, to think as they think. They say “I am your god, for I know better than you. I am smarter than you!”
What is sad is that people worship them, as if they are God. They do listen, and they do live their lives under the edicts of these fellow humans, which in the eyes of God are equal to those they wish to lead and master. Making of them subservient slaves to their will and command.
It has been this way for centuries. There is nothing really new here. It is just wrapped in a newer and brighter wrapping.
We know of a few of them. For some were so horrid in their actions and demands that it caused them to be remembered. A mark upon the history of humankind that due to their blemish upon it none can forget. But most of those that seek dominion over their fellows shall and have been forgotten to all of humanity. Only God knows who they are or were. Yet those alive today think that they will be remembered. However they forget that only those that slaughtered were the ones remembered.
Yes we can partake of music, TV, movies, books and sports. But only in small portions. God must be the focal point in ALL that we do. God must be thought of and present in His light as we listen to music; as we watch TV and movies; as we read books other than the Bible. God must be the statistic we think of when we observe sporting events.
This is how we are to attack the distraction merchants and give all Glory to God though His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
