Whenever you have a common name, doing an internet search takes time to find the real person. Such is the case for Jeff Moody who released two albums over a 10-year career. I discovered Jeff at a local radio based upon the title of his second album, First Priority. At this time, 1999, I wanted to follow Jesus’ advice in Matthew 6:33-34 so making the Lord my first priority became my goal in life for the 2000’s.
And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you, Philippians 1:6.
While I have stumbled and fallen over the past 23 years like Adam and Eve, the apostle Paul shares advice about how to stay focused. If success is the process of arriving, the journey of faith, this was made possible on Jesus’ road to Calvary, Romans 5:8. Jesus didn’t die by accident. Rather, he laid down his own life so that we could live life abundantly, John 10:10. May today’s song remind you of this spiritual process.
