Bill Gates has been quoted as saying, “my success, part of it certainly, is that I have focused in on a few things.” I trust you have recognized the importance of the right focus in your own life. Jesus shares in John 14:15, if you love me you will keep my commandments. A problem that some people have faced is they have not focused on the most important aspect of this verse, loving Jesus, they have focused on obedience. The problem is obedience is not to be the focus but love which will produce obedience. Jesus was asked one day, what the greatest commandment given in the Law was and he responded by saying, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
