Last weekend at The Gathering (the young adults retreat) we were introduced to a new song called “First Place”. The lyrics of the chorus are:
Take first place
Jesus, have your way
My life responds to the grace Your love has shown me Take your place
Take your place, Lord
The line in the middle of the chorus really stood out to me – “my life responds to the grace Your love has shown me”. I love how one sentence can summarise such a fundamental truth. We love because He first loved us. Our lives are forever changed because of Jesus Christ and thereafter our worship is entirely a response to what He has done. Are you asking God to take His rightful place in your life – as Lord and number one?
