I love my husband, children, grandchildren, and now my grandchildren; but I can truthfully say I love Jesus more. I remember the day I first read the scripture, I needed to forsake all others and hate mother, father, spouse and children I was afraid I was going to fail Jesus. He deserves to be number One because He is number One. He is Alfa and Omega, the begining and the end.
Number One in all Things
Put all your prize possessions on the scale of life
Do they measure up when compared with pleasing Christ?
If they are multiplied a thousand times more
Would they come close to your love of the Lord?
Your answer is no… for nothing compares with Him.
No treasure can weigh as heavy within.
And yet when you hear you must all things forsake,
The alarm causes a double take.
Do you reason with yourself?
And make excuses and begin to doubt?
And think… surely it does not mean,
That special person or that certain thing?
Your Lord is always to be number One in every way.
Number One in what you do and in what you say.
He is to be loved above everyone and every thing.
When you willingly and wholeheartedly do this, your heart will sing.
Gladly give it all…whatever is your treasure.
All is required to bring Him pleasure.
But He loves you so much …He said all you need to do is ask;
He joys over you …and gives you much more back.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments,
and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
