Jesus: First in Everything

"For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisable, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist." Colossians 1:16-17

Is He first in your life?

Does His preeminence show in your life?

Do you know that you will never experience the fullness of His joy till you give Him that first place in your life?

You will never experience that fullness of joy, that you were created to know until Jesus Christ has first place in your life.

First Place.

First in your home.

First in your money.

First in you decisions.

First in your thoughts.

First in your marriage.

First in your singleness.

First in your relationships.

First in you choice of entertainment.

First in your career.

First in your dreams.

First in your future plans.

How many of us would actually take hold, and embrace letting Him be first in our life in such a way that it affects and changes our behavior?

We will never experience the fullness of joy that I was created to know until I put Jesus Christ first in every area of my life.

There are a lot of people that will say yes, to that intellectually, but actually doing that for them is another story.

Putting God first is quiet as easy as one thinks, it takes practice.

Call on His name for Him to help you make Him first in your life.

Don't just call on Him in times of need.

Make Jesus a priority each and every day.

Get into His Word.

The most amazing thing is not that Jesus created us for Himself.

The most amazing thing to me is that He has chosen us, in His incredible grace, to love us, to dwell with us & in us, and to forgive us.

There is so much more than we will ever know about our omnipotent, wonderful heavenly Father than we will ever know.

Think about your life.

How many times have you done wrong?

How many times have you asked for forgiveness?

Have you ever thought about His persistent love?

Have you ever thought about how many times He has faithfully pursued you, in spite of yourself?

The times that you have sinned, or rejected God, how amazing is it that He has not left you.

Have you ever thought about how many times, you have said, not now.

I will come to you when I need you.

There is not a problem around that you can afford to face without that complete continuous dependence upon Him!

There is no burden that you can carry that Jesus can't carry for you!

There is no sin that you are struggling with that can't be taken care by His glory.

We are here to bring Him glory, and to make Him known.

He is our purpose: and we find our greatest joy when He is at the center of our lives.

Tell Him Thank You for not giving up on you.

Then ask Him to let you know the joy that comes with giving Him first place in every area of your life.

You will be amazed at how much joy you will get.

Don't be alarmed if it doesn't happen over night, keep being persistent, cause persistence pays off.

In the end you will be glad that you did not give up.

The is not yours, but the Lords!

Give Him the glory and honor that He rightly deserves.

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." Revelation 4:11
