Distraction sermon video. Life is full of distractions. We all have a favorite distraction. Something or someone will foul your life when it is on the line.

Distraction sermon video
Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 7:35; Matthew 4:3-9; Luke 10:40; Luke 10:41-42; John 11:20
I was watching the Utah Jazz in a basketball game that meant the winner going to the championship finals and playing the Chicago Bulls. I watched Karl Malone, a power forward for the Jazz, be intentionally fouled. He walked to the foul line to shoot the free throw. The game was on the line as hundreds of people in the bleachers behind the goal were waving, yelling, and shaking long white animal balloons as a DISTRACTION to Karl.
Life can be distracting. No, sorry. Life is full of distractions. Something or someone will foul your life (not a game) when it is on the line. You will be fouled and sometimes it will seem intentional. You really need to make the shot to get to the championship, but hundreds of distractions are trying to stop you. You have a goal to make, but staying focused on the important thing – the Lord, families, finances, school, exercise programs, diets, etc. is tough.
Probably the thing that we are distracted concerning the most is the Lord and the kingdom. With life waving, yelling, and fouling us, how are we supposed to focus on church and God’s kingdom?
Nonetheless, to play in the championship of life, somehow you MUST “shut out” the balloons, the fouls, and all the DISTRACTION and make the shot. Life depends on it. Life’s benefits depend upon it. (sermon notes and audio)
