Leaving Your First Love-Part 5

November 22

 

In our own eyes we see service and sacrifice as supreme. We move suddenly from just serving because we love God to an attitude of sacrifice and service as if this is how we show how much we love God. We move from being to doing and this is bondage. From knowing we are already accepted in Christ to trying to buy God’s acceptance through our service. My friend, God wants our hearts.

You see there is simplicity in service to God. We tend to serve God a lot of times for the wrong reasons: to be noticed by others or to buy God’s acceptance. God would have us to change our attitudes and our affections. Not because it’s the right thing to do but because we love God and it’s the right thing to do.
