Keeping Our Priorities Straight

And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together). He also is the Head of [His] body, the church; seeing He is the Beginning, the Firstborn from among the dead, so that He alone in everything and in every respect might occupy the chief place [stand first and be preeminent].

                                                                                               (Colossians 1:17-18)

I believe that one of the reasons people lose their peace and fail to have the things they want is because they get their priorities out of line. There are so many projects to which people can give their time and attention. Some of the choices we have are bad options and are easy to recognize as something to avoid, but many of our options are good. Yet even good things can get our priorities all messed up. What is a top priority for somebody else could be a problem for us. So we have to be careful that we don't just do what everybody else is doing. We need to do what God is leading us individually to do.

When setting our priorities, it's important to understand that Jesus is the holding power of all that is good in our lives. That is why He should always be our first priority. Jesus holds everything together. A couple can't have a good marriage if Jesus isn't holding it together. In fact, people can't have a good personal relationships with anybody if Jesus is not leading and influencing individuals to love one another. Finances are a mess without Jesus. Our thoughts are clouded and confused without Jesus. Our emotions are out of control without Him.

Jesus is the head of the church body; therefore, He alone, in every respect, should occupy the chief place, stand first, and be preeminent in each of our lives. That means if Jesus is not first in our lives, then we need to rearrange our priorities.
