Focus on Sons

In my daily readings the other day I came to Psalm 45.

In the first few verses it gives an incredible description of Jesus. Beautiful, grace-full, blessed, majestic, triumphant, truthful, meek, protector, royal and king.
Psalm 45 v 1 - 8

It them describes how Jesus feels about His bride the church. glittering, bejeweled, attentive, showered with gifts, loved and cared for.
Psalm 45 v 9 - 15

Then we have verse 16.

“Set your mind now on sons— don’t dote on father and grandfather. You’ll set your sons up as princes all over the earth."

The bride is encouraged to set her mind on producing sons, sons that will rule the earth.

The focus of the churches existence must be to produce sons. To see people born into the kingdom. To see God's kingdom extended and established in the earth. It is so easy for us to loose focus. As a church matures and grows sometimes the focus can shift to the people inside the church rather than reaching people outside the church.

Maybe time to refocus.
