Priority

We love because he first loved us. Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister. 1 John 4:19-21

Our relationship with Christ is our number one priority. Placing jobs, relationships, money, ambition, and earthly possessions ahead of Christ has caused a great many of us to stumble. Christ is our recovery and our recovery should be all about growing and maturing in Him. Everything we do in recovery is about moving past our old selves and into Christ’s purpose for our lives.

Many of us who have been in recovery for a while, now understand an important reason why our lives were so out of control. We tried desperately to be the lord of our lives. The more we made our earthly attachments our priority, the more out of control our lives became. It wasn’t until our lives had become an entire mess that we figured out what we really needed was a savior. Only when we let go of our need to be in charge did things begin to stop being out of control.

Our recoveries in Christ have to be more important than anything else in our lives. It’s like when an airplane is about to crash and the oxygen masks fall from over our heads. We are told to put our oxygen masks on before we put them on our children and elderly. We can’t help them if we are passed out from lack of oxygen, and they are too young or elderly to be able to help us. Christ must be our first priority. We need to learn to take care of our relationship with Christ first because He is the air that we breathe.

Today’s Prayer

Lord Jesus, You are my priority for everything in my life. Nothing else comes close to the importance of my relationship with You. Take away the things that stand between You and me. Amen.
