That Which is of "First Importance"

  • It has often been said, “You know a good deal about a person if you know what is important to them.” That is a true statement. It was the Lord Jesus Who said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also,” Matt 6:21.
  • There are a few passages of Scripture where our Lord states what is important to Him. We need to give heed to what He has said about such priority.
  • The Apostle Paul was very aware of what was important to God. His life and ministry were patterned by such priority. One significant factor in Paul’s life was his definition and explanation of “the gospel.” Note 1 Cor 15:1-4
