Jesus First

Matt Richards


Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Love this song, "Jesus first every thing come after no money no car it's Jesus I'm after." You know once when I was about twenty two years old I said, "Lord if only I had a car and a girlfriend I would be happy". Or something like that. You know Jesus said to me straight away, "what if you had nothing at all would you still love me?" You know sometimes we are after all this stuff and we even treat God like a 'cosmic genie' (J Cooper) to help us get all this stuff, to make us happy. Kevin is in prison at the moment. I have never ever heard him so happy, ever. So full of joy. I speak to him three or four times a week. "Have you read Colossians Matthew it's anazing." He is leading people to the Lord and he is just on fire for Jesus. Locked up 24 hours a day with 30 mins exercise time. But absolutely loving Jesus. That's in prison. Corrie Ten Boom who survived a nazi concentration camp said, "you may never know that Jesus is all you need until Jesus is all you have". You know Jesus is enough. I want to seek Him first. All the other stuff comes after. What if you put Jesus first. What if you really went for it? What if you prayed everyday, read your Bible, spent time worshipping and serving Jesus? What would your life look like? Jesus first. Prayer:

Father forgive me for putting other things before You. I choose to put You first in every decision be number one in my life today in Jesus' name, amen.
