One And Only

Pastor Steve TaylorFasting 2017

Is Jesus one of many, or is He your one and only?
And God spoke all these words, saying: 2 “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of
the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.
Exodus 20:1-3 NKJV
Who or what are you most tempted to put ahead of Jesus? Who or what is most likely
to be in competition with God for your love and affection, your attention and time?
Once you have that image in your mind, now try to describe why.
21 Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.
1 John 5:21 NLT
Close your eyes and imagine saying your prayers to the person or thing
you are most likely to put ahead of Jesus. How would that go?
How would it compare to praying to Jesus?
“What I need is God’s surgical procedure—His use of external circumstances
to bring about internal purification. Your priorities must be God first, God second,
and God third. Your prayer will then be, ‘In all the world there is no one but You,
dear God; there is no one but You.’ Keep paying the price. Let God see that you
are willing to live up to the vision.”
–Oswald Chambers
