Standing Up Jesus

Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Revelation 2:4
For anyone who is an adult single or used to be, you may have had the unfortunate experience of being stood up or standing someone up. It is hurtful. There could always been a good explanation but never the less it happened. 
How do you think Jesus feels when His children stand Him up on a daily and weekly basis? That's what you do you know when everything else takes priority over Him and you just give Him token love maybe on Sunday. He yearns to spend time with you yet you go on day after day and never sit down long enough to give Him quality and quantity time. In effect you 'stand Him up'. 
You know the feeling of not being wanted or needed? Well that is how our Lord feels when you want nothing to do with Him. Sure you say grace and pop into church for an hour, maybe, but nothing more. Why not decide now to never stand Him up again. 

PRAYER: Thank you Lord for being a loving and patient God. You yearn for me to want to be with you and sit at your feet. Satan loves it when I neglect you. Help me to be able to say no to distractions. In Jesus' name. Amen.
