Seeking Him First

"Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need."
Matthew 6:33 NLT

Why I decided to follow Christ and seek God.

There is no greater love than His.

Prior to following Christ, I was living an empty life. Yet, He still blessed me. I am not deserving.

I am trying to live a righteous life now not because I need to earn God's approval. Definitely not. There is nothing I could do to make Him love me more or less. 

Even if I fail Him daily.

It is a struggle choosing the righteous life. So grateful for God's grace. It has never been more clear what I have to do and what I need to avoid. Do you know that He gives you grace to resist temptation? I no longer feel the need to use foul language. I do not feel left out when I chose not to read a certain book series or missed out on a movie everyone is talking about. He filled that emptiness in my heart. 

It is no longer I should do this because society tells me to. It is now what God tells me to do. So if it not right with my heart, I know it is not right with Him, too. And it is the only thing that matters.

To those of you following Christ, are you putting Him first in your life?
