Is He your all?

Half Christian? Quarter of a Christian? One eighth of a Christian? Maybe a Christian? Are we putting Christ our Savior to a little corner of our minds called "Sunday mornings?" Are we Christians in our homes, on vacations, in school, or anywhere else in the street? Are we Christians only by name? Christianity isn't just about praying before you eat, going to church, or typing "Christian" under the religion column in Facebook. It's about having Christ as your EVERYTHING. That means you're either living for Jesus, or your not. That means your all in it for Him, or your not for Him at all. We need to examine ourselves! What is the most precious thing in our hearts?
Think about the fact that Jesus Christ left HEAVEN, the place we can only imagine how wonderful and beautiful it will be, to come down to an imperfect world knowing He'd be trampled, pierced, betrayed, and hung on a cross. Why? Because He loves us that much. Even when we don't deserve an ounce of that love. We turned our backs on the only perfect person who ever walked the planet, and He paid the price for it on that cross. 
Yet through out all the suffering and pain, He was thinking of how wonderful it would be to see you in heaven, and be with you for eternity!
 You would think that knowing someone like that, we'd lay down our lives for Him, love Him to the fullest, and spend every day thinking of Him. Yet, we have to strive to even make Him our priority. We place sports, music, entertainment, other people, ourselves, a job, or money, above Him. Why? Maybe it's because we can't fully grasp who we're in a relationship here. I mean, do we realize we're in a relationship with the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Almighty, awesome Redeemer,  who knows all our thoughts, loves us even with all our imperfections, and I'll say it again, hung on a cross just for us? For someone like that, we should love Him, live for Him, and worship Him with all our Heart.
"Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment." -Matthew 22:37-38
