Who is First?

June 10, 2023

Judges 6:10
And I said to you, ‘I am the Lord your God; you shall not fear the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell.’ But you have not obeyed my voice.”

How often do we rely on something other than God? When we are in trouble, when we need something, where do we go? In our daily life how often do we go to our phone, watch tv, our favorite app, or go on social media? Is God the first and foremost thing in our life? I know most of my life I have put other things in front of God. I have played baseball my whole life and now coach it; there are times where I put baseball before God, where that is the thing that I think about the most. It sometimes controls my life, my attitude, my mood, not the hope I have in Jesus, not who I am in Christ. The true God says don’t worship other gods. We assume he is talking about other ‘religions” gods but, He is speaking of all the “other” things we put before Him. We live in a land that is not for us. Our home is in heaven once you become a believer in Christ. So, let’s not put other things before God. The world is going to put things before him because they do not know him. He says, I am your LORD your God. He is saying his name Yahweh, making it personal, like you know me, you know my name, you know who I am. Worship the God who saved us from our sin, who made heaven and the earth, the one who made everything, the one who gives us hope and a future. The goal is to put Yahweh first, put Jesus first and the rest of the world’s worries behind you. Put God first and do not worship other gods or things in your life. Let’s put God first today.
