First, it's God...

First, God.
God is the subject of life.
God is foundational for living.
If we don't have a sense of the primacy of God,
we will never get it right,
get life right,
get our lives right.

Not God at the margins;
not God as an option;
not God on the weekends.
God at center and circumference;
God first and last;
God, God, God. Eugene Peterson

Philippians 3:10-11
I gave up all that inferior stuff so I could know Christ personally,
experience his resurrection power,
be a partner in his suffering,
and go all the way with him to death itself.
If there was any way to get in on the resurrection from the dead,
I wanted to do it.
