I Am A Church Member - My First Love-Part 3

May 15, 2015

 

My friend, we need God today and forever. Without Him it is absolutely hopeless. Be careful if your money satisfies you, be careful if your position satisfies you, and be careful if your vocation satisfies you. My friend, only God can satisfy you and meet those deep inner needs that you have.

If anything other than God takes first place in your life then God is not your first love. Something else has become a substitute in your life for God. This is something that has happened to many Christians today. So how do you get out of this cycle? We are to turn our heart, mind, will, and emotions back to God. We are to love God supremely and the things of God, and when we keep this as the central focus in our lives the things of this world will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.
