Priority of the Christian Life

Hey everyone! I wanted to write and talk about God being the first priority in your life; particularly in the lives of young adults.  It seems to me that many of us, myself included, often go through our daily routines of going to school, doing homework, maybe working or playing sports, but we who claim to be Christians spend little time in the Word and in prayer.  Instead we just tack God on as something  we do on Sundays and Wednesdays. Our Christianity should not be something we just do on Sundays and Wednesdays but a constant orientation around God and living out our lives in everything we do to His glory. Having a relationship with Christ is not something exclusively for adults but for every believer of any age. To have a vital relationship with him you must spend time in the Bible and in prayer. The Bible is where we learn everything we can ever know about Jesus.  Many young people do not think God can use them because of their age and inexperience, but God can, will, and does use anyone  who is walking with God and has a desire to bring God glory.  The goal of the Christian life should be as Matthew 6:33 says “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness…” Young people need to realize that our priorities are not our friends, school, sports, etc., but God who has redeemed us. I hope this is an encouragement to you to live your life for God because he is all in that is worth living for!
