Jesus or Facebook?

Listening to Ben's sermon on-line tonight made me think about who I love more. Do I love Jesus or do I love other things in my life more.

What I spend my time on is what I enjoy doing, what I love doing.

Do I follow my family or Jesus? Do I follow money (or lack of money) or Jesus? Do I trust Him that He is able to provide or do I make stressing about the lack of money my God. Do I follow Facebook and its various zygna games or Jesus? What is more important that I serve the food on my cafe, harvest the crops on my farm, or that I spend time reading God's word, encouraging God's people or telling others the Gospel?

By focusing so much time on things that are not Jesus I am making them my God's not Him. I am in Stuart's words a whore! (read his blog to understand).

God is a jealous God, He only wants us to love Him and more often than not I don't love Him as much as I should!

I also listened to Paul's sermon on Faith, (I noticed 3 of my kids are mentioned in Ch 11 of Hebrews!) I long to be in Heaven where I will no longer sin. Where I will no longer put other things before God! Where He will be the centre of my very being. I pray I would remember every day that I'm not home yet, that I am on a journey, living in my tent. I am waiting for the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God, just like Abraham.

Hebrews Ch 11 v8-10
8By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. 9By faith he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise. 10For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God.
