Our culture tells us that being first is the best.
First in line. First to market. First place victory.
Jesus says the first will be last.
Our society tells us that love exists with conditions.
Fulfill my needs and desires, and I will love you. Don’t, and I will walk away.
Jesus says we love because he first loved us. Unconditionally.
Our religion tells us to love good works.
Love truth, love ministry, love evangelism and good works.
Jesus warns “you have forgotten your first love.”
What would it look like for our culture,
our society, and our religion to put Jesus first?
