Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain. Psalms 127:1 NASB
When you start on a project, you want to make sure you have the right tools and equipment. Trying to do a good job without them is a lot harder.
Well, trying to do life without Jesus is not only harder, it is empty and meaningless. You strive to “make-it” and it’s all for nothing because the focus and purpose of life isn’t where it is supposed to be!
Imagine coming to the end of your life, thinking things were good and then realizing you did it all without Jesus and missed it all! The implications are for this life and the next.
Don’t live a life in vain. Put Jesus first and follow His purpose for your life. Everything makes sense when you put Him first.
Your spiritual life is more real than anything you can experience with your senses. If you truly seek Him, you see that!
What are you putting before Jesus? What needs to change?
Father, help me to put You first in all things.
