Scriptures: Matthew 22:36-38

The vision statement for New Colony Baptist Church says “Love God, Love Others and Serve the World Through Jesus Christ.” This statement comes from Matthew 22 which has been called the Great Commandment and Matthew 28 The Great Commission.

How will you start 2019? Who or what sets the priorities for your life? Where will your focus be? How will you manage your time, treasures and talents? In Luke 9:23 Jesus tells us “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up your cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23

This is the first of three messages on our vision statement. This message reminds us that we are to love God with all of our heart, all our soul and all our mind. Jesus refuses to take second place.

I can’t think of a better way to start 2019 than spending more time with God because you love Him. As you read scripture you are in essence listening to God as He brings His word alive in you. When you take time to pray each day you are strengthening your love for God and God can more easily love others through you.

You have a decision to make today. Will you love God first or will something else crowd God out to the margins of your life. Join me in the journey to love God with my entire being.
