Leaving Your First Love-Part 4

November 21

 

Job 22:21– “Submit to God, and you will have peace; then things will go well for you.”

Have you lost the glow of your salvation? Were you once excited? Did you once pray constantly and have an attitude of prayer? Did you once yearn for God’s Word and the work of the Spirit in your life and you had a desire to serve Him? Let me ask you, “What has changed? Has God changed or have you changed?”

My friend, the Bible says that God never changes, so it is not God who has changed, it is not God turning His back on us, it is us turning our backs on Him. 

In our own eyes we see service and sacrifice as supreme. We suddenly move from just serving because we love God, to sacrificing as if this is how we show God how much we love Him and prove to others that we love God.

God wants our hearts first and foremost and from there, we yield to Him the works of our minds, hands, and feet.
