First Resort

Oct 08, 2017

Passage: Mark 1:35-37

Preacher: Tim McConnell

Series: First Things First: The Power of Priority

Category: Discipleship, Gospel, Prayer


Prayer isn’t a last resort. Prayer isn’t a desperation play. Prayer should be our first resort. Prayer is a life plugged into the power of God.

First Resort

This week's sermon:  Prayer is sometimes taken as a last resort: If we can’t do anything else, we might as well pray. But that's not the attitude Jesus demonstrated. Prayer was His first resort. Prayer can be our first priority, early in the morning. Prayer fuels the engine of the Christian life.

What’s really in first place in our lives? We say God is first, but our schedules, commitments and finances tell another story. Setting God in the highest place is not just right, it’s good! When God is first, everything else falls into place. It's time to let God be God. Let's study our priorities until God is at the head of our lives and order everything around Him through worship, obedience, service, prayer and generosity. God in first place—let's put First Things First.
