The Most Important Thing To Pursue For The Year

I was thinking about the new year that is before us and then thought : “What is the most important thing to pursue for the year?”

At one point Jesus was asked what is the greatest commandment? What is the greatest thing to do? He said, to love the Lord your God, and to love your neighbor as yourself.

Matthew 22:37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’[d] 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’[e] 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” NKJV

This is no ordinary love this is intense. It requires your all; all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. In the heart and soul is where the seat of your emotion. In the mind is where your intellect and logic is in your head (or in the core of your being).

Have we fallen out of love, like so many say I fell in love but now I don’t love them any more. What did you fall out of love with him? Yes, I think that is What happened. We were deceived

So —- the first thing to do is to fall in love with the Lord again. You see we have fallen from our first love. (Revelation 2:4-5)
4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. 5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. NKJV

It is time to fall in love with God again. We have lost so much because we don’t love God. I mean really love God. When you are in love with someone then when they are miss represented you are fast to go to their defense. We lack a true burning in our hearts for God.

Make this first the first commandment in your life and make seeking God’s kingdom first in your life. When you do seek God first then your life will start lining up. All these things will be added to you.

Read this for yourself.

Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. NKJV

What a promise for this next year.
