The One Thing

What’s the one thing you’d fight the hardest to hold onto? What one thing would life just be impossible without?

David, who wrote a lot of the Psalms, knew exactly what he wanted most:

‘I’m asking God for one thing, only one thing: To live with him in his house my whole life long. I’ll contemplate his beauty; I’ll study at his feet.’ (Psalm 27:4 The Message)

Jesus invites us to let go of control and let him become the One Thing in our lives. That doesn’t mean nothing else is important. It’s just that nothing besides God can change us into our whole God-made selves.

How could you look out for God’s beauty today?

Psalm 27 here:




You might often hear how God provides for you, and that is true. What is also true is that in this world living a life that is holy and pleasing to God is not going to be easy. Here’s what a guy called G.K. Chesterton once said:

‘Christianity has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult and left untried’

When we push through the hard things of following Jesus, we discover an amazing kind of life. We begin to see God’s presence in our lives in new ways. Have you found that serving God can be tough? Hang in there! The reward of knowing God is worth it. Don’t leave it untried!
