Do you truly belong to Christ? Is there anything in your life that you put before Him? I can say yes… Emphatically.
It’s not just food, although that’s a biggie. I constantly choose to eat to fulfill whatever my soul is craving instead if seeking Jesus. But I also often put off my Bible study in favor of something else or skip church because I don’t feel like going.
I can name many things that I put before Christ, unless of course I’m hurting or need help. Then I’m all up in His face, asking “Why?” or for help.
It’s not easy to put Jesus first, to give Him our best, or undivided attention. So many things get in the way. It requires effort, hard work, and consistency… Just like getting healthy does.
If you are on this rollercoaster of weight loss and healthy habits and are feeling a bit stalled, try putting Jesus first. Belong to Him. Make Him the first priority. From there, he will guide you into that new person, and new life, you wish to begin.
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT
