    What would you say are the two or three most important priorities for Christians to pursue in terms of their faith?

    I agree with Sue but I didn't want to mark the poll just yet because I don't necessarily agree with all of the descriptions - especially worship.

    The top priority is worship and honor to God. It's not just singing - and it could even NEVER involve singing. But our top priority, if nothing else is worship of the Lord.

    Next would be discipleship - living for the Lord, learning more about the Lord and serving Him.

    Finally would be evangelism. This is a direct command and VITALLY important because of that.

    Most of the others would be natural offshoots of the above.

    I agree with Annsni about the singing part of worship.

    I actually chose Worship, Discipleship, and Family Faith. But the Family Faith part might not be there for a man. Family is to be the woman's priority.

    Discipleship and Lifestyle. I think if you have those two things all else will follow.

    Mt 22:37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.Mt 22:38This is the first and great commandment.Mt 22:39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.Mt 22:40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

    I agree with your priorities.

    As a man (and husband and father), I totally disagree with your statement that family faith "might not be there for the man." Family is the husband's and father's priority as well.

    Also had to include service -- "pure religion and undefiled before God..." as St. James says.

    after clicking and unclicking nearly everyone, i chose "not sure"...i honestly can't say where one is more important than the other; and then there is the fact that this one goes hand in hand with that one, and will encompass another one. Sorry, no can do on giving an answer here.

    Other. Mine is maintaining a right relationship with the Lord. If that's right, then everything else will follow as it should.

    Yes, it is. But I was thinking primarily of Titus 2 and Proverbs 31.
