What is the most important thing in your life?

Starting your New Year the right way.

Right now many people are waking up with one of the worst hangovers they will have all year. It was party party time last night. Not so fun on January 1. And not the best way to start off a new year.

Some people look at those who don’t want to drink as party poopers. However, I look at it as freedom. Freedom from a hangover. Freedom from sin. And free to live how my Lord and Savior made and created me to be.

One thing I love about my Lord and my relationship with Him is found in 1 Peter 2:9 (NLT) – But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

A large group of people who are Christians in this world try to see how close they can get to the world without getting burned. A favorite song of mine comes to mind when I think about all the partying and such that happened last night.

All I know is I’m not home yet

This is not where I belong

Take this world and give me Jesus

This is not where I belong

I agree with Building 429 on the song lyrics there. This. This isn’t home. I am just passing through. Called to share Jesus and represent Him along the way. This life is a temporary thing. This life I am leading and living isn’t my own. What I was created for wasn’t for my own thing. I was created with a clear and specific purpose.

Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)  For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. God does have a plan for your life. He has a plan for your 2019. He comes to us and asks, “Will you live your life according MY plan?”

One thing is sure as I kick off 2019, I am living it for Him. I am living for His purpose and plan in my life. I am living it to show people who He is. That is the most important thing in my life.

What about you?
