Seize the Moment – Day 174

Keep the Word of Christ First!

Romans 10


Good morning! This is Pastor Jerry Ingalls from New Castle First Baptist Church and today is Monday, September 7.


We live in such a loud and fast world. How in the world are we expected to remain focused on what matters when so many agendas keep coming at us? What steps are you taking to keep first things first?


In Romans 10:17, Paul explains that “faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.”


Are you hearing the word of Christ in your daily lives? How? Think about how you have or have not created effective rhythms of life that keep the word of Christ first in your day and before you throughout your day. If you are to remain faithful in today’s loud world, you must find ways to do so. 


Why? It has been said that to walk with Christ faithfully we must have the gospel preached to us daily. We are that easily distracted and overrun by the many messages bombarding us. We live in a loud world and God does not compete with it. His invitation has been made and the announcement has gone forth… Are you listening? Not just once upon a time, but today: Who are you listening to today?

 Focus time and energy to listen attentively to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Draw close to God and He will draw close to you. That’s His promise! 
Seize the moment and keep the Word of Christ first in your life!
