It’s the beginning of a new year and you want to start if off right. We have so many responsibilities. How can we decide what comes first? Our relationships? Our health? Travel? Friends? Finances? Family? Work? What about God? It might sound backward, even a little uncomfortable. But trust us, don’t put Jesus first this year. It will be the best decision you have ever made.
Colossians 1:15-18: The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything He might have the supremacy.
Galatians 2:20: I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
1 John 4:10: This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
