“Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” Luke 9:23……..

“And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:18

If you’re entirely honest, are you the star of the show in your life – or not? Do your thoughts, feelings, words, and actions revolve around you – or the Lord Jesus Christ? And others?

The closer I get to Jesus, the more I follow Him, the more I read the Bible, the more I am filled with His Spirit, the greater the conviction when I have fallen back into being consumed with self and my wishes, ways, and wants instead of with the Lord and His ways.

And the more I commune with Jesus, the greater my desire to humble myself, to deny my self, to take up my cross, and to love Him with all my heart and others as myself.

Don’t be the star of the show, friend. Center stage isn’t for us. It’s for the Lord Jesus Christ. May Jesus be preeminent – NUMBER ONE – in your heart and life. May your life not revolve around you but around Jesus Christ, Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Savior of the world, forever heavenly Father, forever almighty God, hallelujah, AMEN!
