If Jesus is my obsession then everything else will fall under His authority and be used for His glory.
So what does that look like? I am glad you asked!
1. We have to get rid of the things in our life that don't glorify God
2. We have to align our priorities and our passions with His purposes
#1 is pretty self explanatory, but I think #2 could use some explaining. I will divide it up into the 3 main areas of our practical lives.
WORK - When trying to align my work with God's purposes, I pray "Lord use me today to advance Your kingdom. Don't let this be just another 5 hours at work, but open my eyes to see where You are moving so I can join You there." On the days that I remember to pray that prayer, God is always faithful to give me a divine opportunity to either encourage someone in their struggle or to speak the truth. The book Courage and Calling talks about the misconception that the only people with a "Call" on their lives are those in ministry. That is simply not true. As believers in Christ we are all "called" to ministry wherever we are. See Colossians 3.23 - "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as for the Lord and not for men."
FAMILY- This one can be hard as we find ourselves running from thing to thing. The secret is, we have to be intentional about it. That intentionality takes the form of praying as a family, memorizing scripture together, going to church together, serving together, and studying the Bible together. There are a lot of other things you can do, but those are the basics.
HOBBIES- I have been thinking about this a lot lately when evaluating my love of photography. I think you have to pray, "Lord, how can I use my love for _____________ (football, photography, reading, kids, etc) to honor and glorify You?" God has recently shown me how I can use photography to help others and I can't wait to tell you about it very soon.
"Whether you eat, drink, or whatever you do - do it all for the glory of God" (1 Cor. 10.31).
