Sang and Thu work in a neighborhood market and share a love for Jesus. As new believers, the two have opportunity to gather and meet with others to study and grow in God’s word. When they are studying, they are filled with peace and joy, but when they leave, the world crowds their schedules and distracts them. They miss chances to have conversations with their unbelieving friends or are pulled by their old way of life.
God did not create us to live a distracted life. God created us to live a Jesus-infused life.
1 Corinthians 7:35, “I am saying this for your benefit, not to place restrictions on you, but because of what is proper and so that you may be devoted to the Lord without distraction.”
Pray for Sang and Thu and others like them that their focus will be on Jesus when they are studying and through their day to live life fully in step with God.
