What's the Thing that puts all other Things in perspective?

Welcome to Season 1 Episode 28 of the Your Church Matters podcast.  In this episode I reflected on a sermon I heard awhile back based on a phrase from Philippians 3:13: “This one thing I do.”



In the sermon, the preacher quoted both D.L. Moody and Zig Ziglar.  The quotes:

D.L. Moody – “Give me one man who says, ‘This one thing I do,’ rather than twelve men who say these twelve things I dabble in.’” 

Zig Ziglar – “All great people have one distinguishing mark, they’re people of single-minded focus.”


I came away asking how I could possible focus on ONE Thing.  On further reflection, I concluded that my one Thing is to be a blessing to as many people as possible, empowering them on the journey of fulfilling God’s unique plan for each of their lives.  That’s my main Thing.  That’s the Thing that puts all the other Things in place.


3 Questions to help you identify your one thing:

  2. What are the activities that you are involved in that energize you?
  3. What keeps you up at night?
