“All things were created by Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” “In Him all things hold together…”
Dude, how is your life held together? Is it safe and sound? Or shaky and chaotic?
This passage goes on to say that Jesus “is the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything He might have the supremacy.” Translation: If Jesus isn’t supreme in your life, your life isn’t being held together very well!
And if we aren’t being held together with peace, we make poor decisions and relationships crumble.
Take a good, honest look at yourself in the mirror. Are you growing closer to Jesus each week? Do other guys see good fruit coming from your life? If so, then you’ve set a solid foundation in Jesus, and are on the right path.
If not, then your life is probably chaotic, shifting this way and blowing that way. You go from one event to the next having no peace in your mind, no order in our home, and no specific purpose to your life. You need to make him “Supreme”!
Confess to Him where you’re at;
Take a stand that you’ll make your relationship with Him top priority;
Evaluate your schedule and do whatever necessary to make that happen;
Simplify your life by making matter what matters most. It’s OK to say “NO” to some opportunities in order to say “YES” toward your goals and priorities.
Turn off the TV and computer often in order to spend some quiet time with God, and some quality time with your family.
Jesus paid the highest price to reconcile us back to God, to make peace and give us an abundant life. He is a God of order who never meant for us to be too busy to enjoy the simple pleasures He offers, which lead to contentment, joy and peace.
SIMPLIFY by PRIORITIZING YOUR LIFE TODAY!
