Pastor Beck challenged everyone that is a part of Family Church to RESOLVE to live God-First in all of 2015! We all only have one life to live, and the one life we live here on earth will echo throughout eternity.
We all face enemies to “God-first living.” We will be tempted to put ourselves first, put others first and/or put other things before God. 1 John 5:21 states, “Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.”
God-first living can only flow out of a heart where God is dwelling. Whoever and whatever has your heart – has your life.
Matthew 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses? ”37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
God-first living will flow out of a person whose priorities are in order. God and His Kingdom must be first, our family (marriage and then children) second, and our relationships with others third. Our resolve will be strong when the power of the Holy Spirit is working in us and through us!
Resolve now to live a “God-first Life” in 2015!!
