Keys to spiritual maturity: First Things First (Part 4)

keys to spiritual maturity -
This is what God is looking at. Are our hearts full of things that place demands on us? Or are our hearts free from things and longing for God? The possessive clinging to the things of life is one of the most destructive habits in life. Because it is natural, most times we do not even recognize it. But it can devastate our lives. Everything we commit to God is safe. What is not committed to God is not safe.

1 Corinthians 4:7 What are you so puffed up about? What do you have that God hasn’t given you? And if all you have is from God, why act as though you are so great, and as though you have accomplished something on you own?

Many things demand our hearts and lives. But we need to get our priorities right. God first and everything else secondary. Imagine how this would change our lives. I believe that God is calling us back to this style of life.

Matthew 6:31-33 So don’t worry at all about having enough food and clothing. Why be like the heathen? For they take pride in all these things and are deeply concerned about them. But your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well that you need them, and He will give them to you if you give Him first place in your life and live as He wants you to.

God wants to add everything that we need, if only we would place Him first.
