The first thing

The first thing

Acts 15:14
“Simon has described to us how God at first showed his concern by taking from the Gentiles a people for himself.”

The first thing is not the only thing.

At first God created the heavens and the earth but there was more to come.

God asks for consecration of the firstborn, the giving of first fruits and the first tithe, the resting of the first day, but God demands our whole life, our all.

Jesus called his first disciples, they were Simon and Andrew, but there were more to come.

James is showing in what he says that though God started with the Jews He wasn’t ending there.

We need to learn that the first thing is not the only thing.

It shows there is more to come.

What is now may and will develop. The idea may be great but it is the initial concept of a whole plan. What is now may be miraculous but it is a seed for miracles to come.

Look back on your life and see where God started and now look at what has come from that beginning. Look at you now! God at first did this … but then this happened!

If God has plans to do something new even now in your life then be ready for a whole adventure to begin.

The first thing is not the only thing.
