Text: Exodus 40:3, 1 Corinthians 3:11
We are good at making priorities out of things that God didn’t make priorities out of. Jesus Christ said of the Pharisees they did a lot of things, but they left the weightier matters of judgment and mercy undone. What you leave undone will determine what kind of Christian you are. Priorities are:
- Exodus 40:3
- Ark of the covenant was built first. God’s priority is fellowship with his people.
- Ark of the covenant was placed first.
- When fellowship with God is in its right place, everything else will be in the right place.
- 1 Corinthians 3:11
- Jesus Christ is the only true foundation of all things.
- We try to force a foundation underneath things we’ve already built.
Practically giving the Lord Jesus Christ priority
- Foundation of your time
- daily – Paul said I die daily.
- Sun, moon – God set up the natural boundaries of time
- Foundation of your finances
- seek ye first…
- Foundation of your family
