We are exuberant with excitement and a feeling of such joy that is somewhat overwhelming. We are in love with our Savior. He went to the Cross for us and bled for us and died for us. When we became born again we were so full of anticipation and were willing to serve the church in any capacity. (John 3:7)
Then do to being a wife, a mother, a husband, a father, an employee, etc. our anticipation waned somewhat, because of daily responsibilities and “life happening.”
We used to read our Bible daily and wouldn’t dare miss time with The LORD. Then we’d be busy and only take our Bibles to church on Sunday’s, and maybe, on Wednesday night Prayer meetings. When we once were so full of God and didn’t seem to get enough of Him, now we are taking little bits of time at lunch or before bedtime. That is if we aren’t too tired!
Life does happen, but He who created us deserves ” time” with us and not the scraps of it, we so often give Him.
He was and should always be our first love.
The way we felt when we first accepted Him. You remember: those full of excitement times when you felt as though
you could burst! We were so full of peace and joy and couldn’t wait to share with the world, our new world, and what He did for us. He saved us from the sin that has kept us from Him. God is perfect and He can’t have us flawed.
We will never be perfect here on earth, because we have flesh bodies, but we continue to be perfected as we allow The Holy Spirit of God to guide us.
Our souls are saved from the place in eternity called hell. But, we still live in those flesh bodies that haven’t been saved. Once we give our hearts to The LORD and accept His Son, Jesus as our Savior, then our eternity is in Heaven.
We need to get back to our first love and show Him how much we love Him, Trust Him, and Worship only Him.
Anything we allow in our lives more than God, is an idol that we are worshipping.
He wants “all” of us and not the “us” we have chosen to become, without Him.
Let us get back to our first love, Jesus who gave up everything for us.
