Tonight I'm preaching.
We live in a world that constantly preaches "me first" don't we? And yet our leader is the one of whom it was said "Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn't claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that: a crucifixion."
Why is it so hard to be a "you first" kind of person? Really, what are we afraid of?
I know I'm afraid that I won't get what I want. You too?
I want to trust Jesus more -- that he will give me all I need, which is really what I want.
I should trust him easily -- he proved it on the cross.
I want to prove it, too. But for me, that proof happens with my wife, my kids, my coworkers - and even my neighbors.
Who can you say "you first" to today?
