The importance of putting GOD first in our life…

Always put GOD first…

Question: What does a drowning man want more than anything in this world?

Answer: His next breath of air.

God’s promise is that when we seek after Him that way, like a drowning man seeking his next breath of air, then we will find Him.

God is omniscient, and as such there is NOTHING about your life that He does not already know.

We have to learn to live by faith, seeking GOD first, above ALL things (see Hebrews 6).

Matthew 6:24-34

24 Jesus speaking: “No one is able to serve two masters. For either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other.

You are not able to serve God and money (Mammon).

The Sermon on the Mount: Anxiety

25 “For this reason I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, what you will eat, and not for your body, what you will wear. Is your life not more than food and your body more than clothing?

Is your life not more than food and your body more than clothing?
26 Consider the birds of the sky, that they do not sow or reap or gather produce into barns, and your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth more than they are?
27 And who among you, by being anxious, is able to add one hour to his life span?
28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe the lilies of the field, how they grow: they do not toil or spin,
29 but I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory was dressed like one of these.
30 But if God dresses the grass of the field in this way, although it is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not do so much more for you, you of little faith?
31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?,’ 32 for the pagans seek after all these things. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
33 But seek first his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
34 Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow, because tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
