Perishing In The Promised Land Pt 2 – Putting God First
PUTTING GOD FIRST
God's name is Jealous; He is a jealous God: FOR us, not OF us. His jealousy is protective and not competitive like that of the world. God wants to be first in our hearts; He is the Alpha and Omega. Whether we put God first or not doesn't change His position as First but it changes the blessing on our lives.
1. Live by the Spirit who pours out God's love in our hearts and enables us to put God first.
2. Say no to the world. We are called to love the people in the world but not to love the world because that keeps us from putting God first.
3. Set your priorities right. Martha was busy serving Jesus (distracted and didn't put God first) and Mary was listening to Jesus.
