Due to the large amount of sermons and topics that appear on this site I feel it is necessary to post this disclaimer on all sermons posted. my sermon ideas and illustrations are often taken from many sources including those at Sermoncentral.com, there could be instances where other minister’s wording is used, or wording similar. I am not trying to steal anything from anyone else, just trying to help others proclaim the gospel. my sermons are not copyrighted and may be used or preached freely. May God richly bless you as you read these words. It is my sincere desire that all who read them may be enriched. All scriptures quoted in these sermons are copied and quoted from the Authorized King James Version of the Holy Bible.

turn with me to

Luke 4:20

20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

Matthew 17:8

8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

Acts 8:35

35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

These are all wonderful texts that we have read this morning

"The eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on Him." That is the way it always ought to be.

"They looked up and saw no man, save Jesus only." That is the way it always ought to be.

And, "he began at the same scripture and preached unto him Jesus." That's the way it always ought to be.

in John 12:21 The Grecian people came one time looking for Jesus. They simply said these words, "Sirs, we would see Jesus," John 12:21.

that should be our desire this morning

Matthew 6:33

"But Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you"

I have a very interesting fact that I want to share with you.

some people might say this is just a coincidence

but Did you know that out of the 27 books in the New Testament, 23 of them jump right into Jesus in the very first verse?

that tells me that we ought to put jesus first

There are only four books in the New Testament, out of the total twenty-seven, that do not talk about Jesus in the first verse

Those books are: Luke, Hebrews, II John and III John.

Jesus is mentioned either by name or description in the first verse of Matthew, John, Acts, Romans, I and II Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, I AND II Thessalonians, I and II Timothy, Titus, Philemon, James, I and II Peter, I John, Jude, and Revelation.

Now, in Hebrews, the first verse does not mention His name. In the second verse, it mentions the word "Son." But in Hebrews 1:3, it jumps right into mention about the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 John gives a two verse introduction then jumps into mention the name Jesus in verse 3

with all of that we should learn that in everything we do, Christ ought to be first?

He ought to be first in our music.

He ought to be first in our preaching.

He ought to be first in our Sunday school.

He ought to be first in our work.

He ought to be first at school.
