We Should Put Him First
This morning I am wrestling with the truth that Jesus is the firstborn Son. Choosing to chew on that fact until I reach further revelation. If He is the firstborn Son then that means there are more sons and daughters. And those sons and daughters should recognize that we should put Him first.
So here are some things I considered in putting Jesus first:
- He was the firstborn of Mary.
- He was the first born of the Spirit. He was God’s first Son.
- He was the firstborn of the Kingdom of Heaven.
- He was the first to be with God, in the beginning, the first Son of Creation.
- He was, He is, and He will always be forevermore.
So as we recognize these truths how do we put Him first in our lives?
- We wake and greet HIm first.
- We give priority to the study of His Word.
- We walk according to that Word. Applying it to our lives daily.
- We pray before meals acknowledging that our blessings are from Him.
- We give Him all the glory for everything good that happens in our lives.
- We make sure people can “see” He is first in our lives.
In what way do you put Jesus first? Leave a comment below. I love to hear from readers.

Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others.
I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile.
Blessings to you and yours,
