Should Jesus Be Your First Priority?


Welcome to the first day of Grace Full Women Daily Devos.

Should Jesus Be Your 1st Priority?

Colossians 3:3-4 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

How many times have you heard or even said, ” Jesus must be number One in your life. Make a list of your priorities and if He’s not at the top you need to make some changes.”?

I have taught this numerous times and tried to do it myself. The truth is when we become children of God, new creations in Christ, we become one with Jesus. { And your life is now hidden with Christ in God.} You are no longer separate from Him, but He is your life.

Jesus is not just supposed to be at the top of your priority list right before your husband and children. He is your life, part of all aspects of your life. When you love on your husband and children, let Jesus do it through you. As you speak to others let Him say it through you. When you are serving, working on the job, or making decsions, trust Jesus to do it in and through you. You are no longer your own, you are one with Christ.

This may sound like you’ve been captured, or imprisoned, however it is anything but that. There is more freedom in allowing Jesus to be your life than there ever could be in trying to make Him some sort of priority and failing at it almost every day.

It’s important for you to be aware of your identity in Christ. One aspect of that is to realize He is your whole life and He can’t be dispersed neatly into different compartments of your life and left out of others.  There is great freedom in living in this truth.

Have you been spending time trying to make Jesus your 1st priority, or do you allow Him to live life in and through all your life.

  1. This is really good. And it’s important to also remember that in order to know this Friend I must learn more about Him. In order to act and respond ways that please Him, I must know how He acted and responded. So logging off now to get into the word — thanks for the morning devo! 😀

I really, really want to know what you're thinking so leave a comment.
