Gettin' Fixed!





Sometimes it's hard to not sound 'tin-foil hat' crazy when pointing out the obvious upside-down thinking that gets embedded into the societal psyche. Just think about it: We call the procedure by which we purposely remove the God given functionality of 'be fruitful and multiply', "getting fixed". Sounds more like "getting broked [sic]" :)

If we looked through the lens of Biblical Truth, we would see that we all need to get fixed. Not just repaired or restored but just as importantly, reset and refocused. It's been proven that we as people are really only able to focus on one particular thing at a time. Even when we're multi-tasking, we're really just giving individual slices of focus time in rapid succession to get several things done seemingly simultaneously. Looks like the Bible understands this and already has suggestions on a priority for our focus time.

Here's The Word;

Deuteronomy 11:18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.

Psalm 108:1 O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

Psalm 112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

2 Corinthians 4:18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Hebrews 3:1 [ Jesus Greater Than Moses ] Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.

Hebrews 12:2(a) fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.


I imagine that many people can't see how this can play out practically. However, I don't assume that keeping a primary focus on Christ would compromise any of the other responsibilities that comprise the logistics of our waking day. On the contrary, I think this occupation with Christ would guide our days into the fullness of joy that can only come from "a closer walk with Thee".

I hope that you're encouraged to 'get fixed': Firstly, by receiving Christ and His gift of salvation, removing your rightfully deserved indebtedness to the penalty of sin (which is death - eternal separation from a Holy God). Secondly, humbling yourself before Christ as LORD where the power of The Holy Spirit leads you and helps you put your self-directed desires behind that of knowing Christ and having Him renew you, use you and fix you - that you would be fruitful and multiply.


In Him,
Cros
