The Most Important of All

23
What is the most important thing in your life? Good question? No, it’s not. The most important question shouldn’t be what is the most important thing in your life, but who is the most important person in your life. And if you cannot definitively, undoubtedly, by your mouth and in your heart and according to your thoughts and actions and lifestyle, say and demonstrate that the Lord God almighty is number one in your life, then you are missing the most important of all.

If you are familiar with the 10 Commandments, and I confess that only recently did I take a deeper plunge into them as I had admittedly, and ashamedly, taken them for granted for far too very long, the very first commandment is plain and clear when it comes to priorities: “You shall have no other gods before me (Exodus 20:3 ESV).” But if the truth be told, and you take a close and honest look at your life, is the Lord absolutely without a shadow of a doubt number one in your life?

How can you tell? Not merely by your mouth. But by your heart (your thoughts and feelings) and your actions (your choices, commitment, and actions). How often do you speak about the Lord? How often do you think of the Lord? How often do you seek Him? How often do you spend time with Him? Do you study His Word regularly? Are your choices based on God’s Word or the world’s ways? Is your commitment to the Lord, to yourself, or to others? Are your actions a reflection of your love for the Lord, or are they based on what feels good, looks good, or what others want from you? It’s easy to say you believe in God, isn’t it? And it’s easy to say you love the Lord, right? But does your lifestyle demonstrate that He is the most important person in your life? If you stepped outside of yourself and looked at who you are and how you live your life, would you definitively be able to say that Jesus Christ is Lord of your life?

If you are convicted in considering all this, and genuinely sorry if perhaps you realize that God really isn’t number one in your life, know that there is a difference between conviction and condemnation and between godly sorrow and worldly sorrow. Conviction and genuine remorse over realizing your priorities are out of order are meant to lead you to repentance so that you seek the Lord’s forgiveness and commit by His grace and strength to making the changes you need to make. Guilt and condemnation, and worldly sorrow, are what Satan will use to do his best to keep you in bondage and to try to prevent you from making God number one in your life. Godly sorrow leads to repentance and life. Worldly sorrow leads to death.

Who is the most important person in your life? If it’s God, carry on. If it’s not, repent and make the necessary changes. If you find that you have been bowing down to the world, to others, to other gods, and/or to Satan, repent and bow down before the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Bow down before God. Bow down before the Lord. Bow down before Him in love, in praise, in adoration. For He is God! May He be most important in your life today and for always. May you have no gods before Him. May He be exalted in your life today and forevermore.

“You shall have no other gods before me.” Exodus 20:3 ESV

“For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.” 2 Corinthians 7:10 ESV

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1 KJV
