Jesus First

This morning I came across a short post about the concept of putting Jesus first, Others second, Yourself third in order to find real JOY. The writer had just heard of this idea and was saying how great it sounded. I agree! While I read of this years ago as a new Christian, it's nice to be reminded.

Putting Jesus FIRST in everything we do is the secret to real and lasting joy. Note, I didn't say happiness. Happiness is a fleeting thing. Joy is deep-seated and immovable. But joy requires submission to God, i.e., putting Jesus first.

Have you found real JOY for your life? Want it? Ask the Lord to enable you to put Him first in everything you do! Putting others second will naturally follow when that's the way you live each day.
