Last weeks sermon was about putting first things first.
I have heard many people say that they put their marriage and their family first. I have even heard some so honest as to say that they put their job or favorite pass time first. Well, OK
But God commanded us to put Him first - before everyone else and especially ourselves. Does that make you bristle? Seem kind of selfish? Well let's remember a few things.
- God already gave His Son to DIE first before He knew whether or not you would even trust Him and ask for His forgiveness.
- Jesus already paid the price for your sins, redeeming you from an eternity in hell.
Doesn't sound very selfish to me.
In one of the 10 commandments God says that we will not idolize anything in place of Him. What we are talking about here is a non negotiable. God isn't interested in being first, part time (Is that possible?) He will be first - full time!
Is God first in your day?
Is God first in your family?
Is God first in your attitude?
Is God first in your money?
Is God first in your heart?
Is God first in your life?
