    # 208 – JT Wax: Why Can’t We Stay Focused on Jesus?

    JT Wax is a Chaplain at Fort Liberty. Recently, their chapel finished a study on Colossians, and in this episode John got to have a conversation with JT about why we struggle to focus on Jesus. There are so many "shiny things" that the enemy puts before us - both bad things and good things - that distract us from looking at Jesus.



    JT and John explore what some of those are, why we are so prone to get distracted, and how we can combat the enemy in this area.

Christ exalting, God glorifying podcast

Thank you for creating this podcast to help us grow closer to God and point others to Him. It truly is fantastic work you are doing for the kingdom!

Abigail Elizabeth Monson ,

So encouraging!

I’m so encouraged by and thankful for this podcast! They do such a good job at addressing ideas through the lens of the bible and it is so relevant to being a disciple of Jesus today and showing others how to do the same. I listen to it during my commute to work and it always encourages me and makes me so excited in all the ways that God is working in my life and the lives of those around me. He is surely producing fruit from this ministry!
