Are you obsessed with anything? Is there something that preoccupies your mind more and more? The word obsessed is defined as to have the mind excessively preoccupied with a single emotion or topic. I was recently sitting around some tables with a group at church discussing this very topic. We were doing a bible study and the current week’s study was the profile of the obsessed. It was talking about what it looks like to be a person obsessed with Jesus. I sat there looking at the group of people around me. We had a wide variety of people. It ranged from high school student, clear up to the retirement age. Some grew up in the church, others just found church. They all had one thing in common though. They want to be obsessed with Jesus. They are taking time to read and study God’s word. The Bible teaches us to be consumed with Christ and live out His words. I feel there are too many so called Christians that only think about Jesus once or twice a week and an hour or so each time. Can you imagine, if all the people who call themselves Christians would truly be obsessed with Jesus and let Him control every thought and action in their life. What would this world be like? We might actually have politicians that call themselves Christians, voting pro-life and standing for what our fore fathers stood for, instead of the opposite. I feel that people are losing sight of what being a Christian really means. My challenge to everyone is to read God’s word. You can’t just let someone tell you what it says, you need to read and study it yourself. You need to take God’s handbook for life and put it to use. If you are obsessed with God, you will put you love for Him above and before every other thing and every other being.
