For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21
Have you left your first love? I am talking about Jesus. Maybe many who have, aren't even reading this as even 1 minute with Jesus is too much trouble. There could be those who listen to the sermons about putting Jesus first and may think they are, just by being in church or being in a certain denomination.
There is a verse in Revelation that says "if we are lukewarm, he will spit us from his mouth". ( See Revelation 3:16). Now how about that for a word picture? If you hang out with the wrong crowd they can drag you down to the gutter with them and try to make you think like them, even if they go against what you know to be right. Maybe you need a new church home that is on fire for the Lord not one that is constantly telling you how bad you are. Love is where it is at and it is God's job to judge not ours.
Wherever you are at on your spiritual journey know that God is there for you. He understands and loves you. He forgives and forgets even when man can not. Allow Him to light your spiritual fire today.
PRAYER: I love you Lord and I don't want to listen to the world and its' ways as this world is not my real home. Help me not allow Satan to get me to turn away and believe lies. In Jesus' name. Amen.
