Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee
1 Timothy 4:16
There will come that defining moment for every believer where his priorities must be reassessed and redirected.
I’m talking about the moment where he must say: “It is not reason that I should leave the word of God and prayer for less important things.”
The believer is primarily a man of the Spirit that requires ‘feeding’ in order to grow.
This is not to deny the fact that there will be legitimate things calling for your attention. They will very often be required, however, the core must remain core.
“But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word”. Acts 6:4
The believer is charged to give himself wholly to the things of the Spirit. He is urged not to neglect or be indifferent about it.
Sources of distractions must therefore remain managed or eliminated where necessary.
Perhaps someone reading this might have misplaced his priorities. This is a charge for you.
Paul to the church at Colossae said: “And say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it” Colossians 4:17
Like Archippus, many believers need their focus readjusted.
Recreate a schedule for daily devotion after reading this. Let’s not get too busy not to pray!
