Jesus had iron in the fire

Red-Letter Monday
"My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work" (John 4:34). 

To accomplish a task is noble. It means to have a goal in mind and to achieve it.

Many start projects; few finish.

Jesus finished His task.

Jesus' primary work was summed up, "to give his life." Every other task He did was viewed with that end in mind. It was His food - His fuel.

Jesus didn't have a lot of irons in the fire, just one strong, brightly burning one.

What do you want to accomplish? What is your goal? And what are the small things you are accomplishing each day so that you may say, "It is finished" (cf. John 17:4; 19:30).

Perhaps much of our problem is not too many irons in the fire. Perhaps its that some of them do not help us achieve what we really need to accomplish. If they did, would they still be in the fire?
