Christians who walk worthy of the gospel by align their interests with the interests of Jesus. Christ’s first interest is the church. Then, his second interest is the salvation of the lost.
Thus, a Christian who is right with God will adjust the priorities of his or her own life so that they match these priorities. You may say, “I don’t seek my own interests. I seek God’s interests.” But what do your actions show? The apostle Paul lamented, “For all seek their own interests, and not the interests of Jesus Christ.”
Listen to this convicting, specific sermon and determine whether you’ve really put the church and the salvation of the lost first.
