Daily Devotional – Who is No.1

By on January 6, 2020
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Matthew 22: 34-40. We have all asked, “but what is the most important thing or desire” of others. We may have even asked, of God, “what is the most important commandment?”

“Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[c] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[d] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Jesus was asked in Matthew, “which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” The law of Moses clearly said that “You shall have no other gods before[a] me” in Exodus 20: 3. God wants to be No.1. He rightfully deserves being worshipped and acknowledged as No.1. As the creator and the only true, living God, we ought to place Him as No.1.

Many people place various gods, objects, or people before God. They place their own needs and desires ahead of God never mind those around them. But God has instructed us to place Him as No.1 in our lives and thoughts. There is to be no person, no object, or god before Him.

The greatest and first commandment was given to us by God was to love Him and lift Him up in our viewpoint. Praise and Worship God to exalt Him in your own eyes, and the eyes of everyone else in your world. In all that you do today and this year, take every opportunity to glorify and testify to the great God that you have submitted your life too!

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, Jesus, for reminding us of the greatest commandment. I submit myself, my thoughts, and my dreams to You and Your will. Take preeminence and the focus today and every day that follows. 

In Jesus name
Amen
