But I have this against you: You have left the love you had in the beginning.
Revelation 2:4 ERV
In the beginning when you first knew the Lord, you had a great love for Him. You enjoyed spending time with Him in prayers and reading the word of God. You asked questions that you may understand more the way of the Lord; and listened carefully whenever the word of God was preached.
You had a good relationship with the Lord and repented whenever you felt you sinned against Him. As the days go by you faced problems, temptations and many hardships that took your focus away from the Lord. You started concentrating on your problems and figure out the way to fight them and you forget that the Lord was more than willing to help.
You became so immersed into your life and the fire inside of you started to fade. There are things people of God do to rekindle the fire of God inside of them. One of the things is to engage themselves in the fellowship with others believers. They spend enough time in prayers, they fast, read the word of God and listen the word of God through others ministers of the Gospel.
This morning, I want to encourage you to remember how you once loved God, repent for your sins and start to love Him again by doing what you did first. If used your own strength to deal with your problems and forgot completely about God then is about time to start putting God first in everything.
If you have been with the Lord all this time. I believe there is still a room for you to grow and love the Lord more every day. You can still live the life of fire and act more like our Lord Jesus Christ. You need to make a commitment everyday to love our Lord Jesus Christ, and give yourself more to Him.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, help me to remember the love I had for You when I first knew You. I want to continue loving You more and more every day. Help me to live a blameless and spotless life before You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
