What is your main aim in life – to lift up yourself or lift up God? To get what you want or give God what he wants?
Putting God first is not little matter. In the Bible God says, “They that honor me will I honor.” How can we honor God today? Begin by noticing him. Do not ignore him any longer. Talk to him – in prayer. Right in your home, pray to him – individually and gather your family and acknowledge God in grateful prayer.
Another thing – don’t do all the talking. Let God say something. Do you know how God speaks to us? Through his Word, the Bible. Study the Scripture. Begin with the Gospel of Mark. Do it daily.
Also, if you would honor God, don’t shove aside the cross of Christ in forgetfulness and neglect. Paul said, “God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Make a lot of the death of Christ for you. Tell God pointedly that you accept that death as your sin-sacrifice. Never tire of saying, “Thank you, Jesus, for dying for me.” Cling to the cross and leave sin alone. Indeed, make much of all your blessings. Praise the Lord for he is good!
