fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith 

 In our fast-paced, attention-grabbing world, it is easy to get caught up in the daily grind, get distracted, and lose sight of our true purpose in life—the worship and love of God (see Matthew 22:37). Yet we are told to run our race with our eyes focused on Christ: “Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith” (Hebrews 12:1–2). How can we resist the allure of the world and keep our focus where it belongs, on Christ?

FOCUS 2020 is a series of challenges that will be issued to the SCC family in 2020 to help us keep our eyes, our attention, our FOCUS on Jesus in 2020.

The second challenge in this series of challenges is to spend at least 9 minutes and 59 seconds per day in prayer/quiet time/Bible devotionals.  The series of questions below will serve as a guide for nearly any passage of scripture you choose.

1. Prayer (list them)
2. Scripture Reading (list passage of your choice)
-If you don't know what passage to start with,
the Gospel of John is always a good choice-
3. What does this passage say? (summarize)
4. What does this passage say about God?
5. List sins to avoid revealed in this passage.
6. List any commands to follow.
