We have too many things in our lives and too many directions we can be pulled. Where do we start to line up our priorities? What things mean the most to us in the end?
In this life as Christians our first priority must be Christ and the relationship that we have with Him. Yes our very first which means it comes before our marriage, friends, work, hobbies, etc……Some would argue otherwise but the Bible makes it very clear about where are priorities should be.
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; for you were once not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
1st Peter 2:9-10
Peter is reminding the Jews who believed in Christ and were scattered throughout many parts of the nations that they are God’s people. And just like Christians who are scattered around the world today our purpose, because of His great mercy is to glorify Him. This now leads us to prioritize our life accordingly.
and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.
1st Peter 2:24
A Godly life isn’t only for certain people it’s for everyone. If we make Christ our top priority we can:
*Grow and walk in righteousness
*Die to sin
*Become more and more of a godly friend, husband/wife, father/mother, etc
*Pursue and love the Lord more and more each day
*Give everything we have sacrificially for Christ
*Be an effective evangelist in all ways and forms
So with all of that in mind is our priority Christ and the time we give to him?
Or is it just Sunday from 9 to 11?
When you wake up in the morning what are the first things that come to your mind?
