Leaving Your First Love-Part 10

November 29

 

There comes a time in every believer’s life where they need to stop and reflect on how things use to be in their relationship with God. Have you been growing spiritually or would you say, “No not really.” Has your relationship with God grown cold and has the intimacy you once shared with Him fallen by the wayside?

My friend, if this has happened you have lost your first love and your testimony and witness have no impact. God does not use you anymore. There is only one thing you can do when you have lost your first love, you must turn to Him in confession and repentance.

Confession and repentance is for the believer so that the weight of the guilt might be left at the foot of the cross and you need not carry it anymore. When you have dealt with your sins, then get up and live the life God intended for you to live. Let your light so shine that others may see the beauty of Jesus in you. Jesus, be Jesus in me!
