Philippians 3:20. But our citizenship is in heaven – and we also await a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,

To grow in faith we must guard our focus. Since our faith is directed to God our focus must be on God. Our tendency is to focus inward: what’s in it for me,how will it affect me, etc.. Our real questions should be what’s in it for God and how will it impact God’s purpose and desire? Satan fell because his desire was for himself first and foremost. We keep sinning because our focus is oneself. Praise God we have a helper to learn to keep our focus on God. Our helper is the Holy Spirit, God dwelling in us. Let us continually remember to look to Him to keep the focus of our faith.
