First Things First!!!

Hey Everyone, Doug Here....

The other day, I was rushing out the door to go pick up my boys and I wanted a snack. So on my way to the car I grabbed a bag of sunflower seeds and a cup of sweet tea to go with it. When I got to the car ready to leave I had the sunflower seeds, my sweet tea and for some reason a roll of tape. What did I not have? My keys. I was so focused on what I was going to take with me, what I wanted, and other clutter that I forgot the one thing I needed to get me where I wanted to go.

I believe there are many people in churches all across the U.S. in a similar situation. They are "putting the cart before the horse" as the old saying goes. They join a church, start getting involved in various community outreach ministries, and may even be asked to teach a bible study after a while. But if they haven't accepted Christ and made him Lord of their lives, even with all those "good deeds" they won't have what they need to get to where they want to go. Just like me in the story, they get wrapped up in the incidental stuff of "being a Christian" and forget the KEY to it all, a relationship with Christ.

 

Just A Thought...
