People follow coffee, sports, music, politics, family, patriotism, romance, etc.

I frequently see people
Take delight in coffee,
Celebrate sports,
Appreciate family,
Brag about a politician,
Go gaga over music,
Gush about romance,
Glory in their nation,
Get excited about an award,
Applaud alcohol,
But not very many
Who continually
“Delight in the Lord”
And keep Jesus first!

The clue
To great breakthrough
In your life is:
Whatever you do,
Follow Jesus first.

Follow Jesus,
The “Son of Man,”
Not your own plan.

Jesus has many admirers
But few followers.
May He always
Be my first delight.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
