At this point in my life, God has me on a shelf. When I say that, I mean that he is preparing me to do what he needs me to do to further His Kingdom. Almost everyday I wake up I am excited because I know I will be starting my day by giving God the honor, glory, worship, and praise that he deserves. And on the days that I am dragging, or oversleep, because, YES I am flawed, I have to tell myself its time to do what you need to do. God is priority in my life and I seriously fear him, so I want so badly to obey him and make him proud.
I continuously read my Bible because I don't want to miss a thing, but it wasn't until we started doing a Home Bible Study, you guys are welcome to come by the way, that I realized I was not always adhering to the teachings of Jesus. I realized that I would prioritize the words of someone else in the Bible over the teachings of Jesus. You see the teachings of Jesus are in the first four books of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Our home Bible Study started with The Gospel according to John and it has been eye opening. John 1:1 says: In the beginning was the Word=Jesus and the Word=Jesus was with God and the Word=Jesus was God. Don't laugh at me y'all but I just realized that The Word is Jesus! So all this time that I have been calling the entire Bible the Word of God I have been mistaken. It's a Book of writings inspired by God that includes the Word of God: The teachings of Jesus. You see the teachings of Jesus should be priority. He was the one who willingly DIED for us so we can live an ETERNITY in PARADISE.
