A People of Peace and Focus in an Age of Distraction

Notifications, alerts, algorithms, and endless content to be consumed. We live in the age of technology and information. While these things certainly aren’t all bad and have a place in our lives, it seems that place keeps expanding throughout each moment of our days. In this world of distraction and entertainment, how can we, in the words of Jesus, “choose the better part” and become a people of prayer and focus in an age of distraction.

Scripture References: Matthew 16:21-23, Matthew 26:36-46

From Series: "Zeitgeist"

Noah was called “a righteous man, blameless in his generation” and in Acts 2 Peter urges those he is preaching to “to save themselves from this corrupt generation”. In a one sense this idea of those living faithful, committed lives is true for all people in all generations. There has always been and there always will be this remnant of the faithful in all generations. In another sense, each generation must, in the words of Jesus (Luke 12:54-56) “interpret the present time” in order to rise to the challenge of today. What are those challenges to faithful discipleship in today's "zeitgeist" or "spirit of the age", and what type of people is God calling us to become today?
