3/14/13 Daily Devotion

Revelation 2:4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first.

Even though the church at Ephesus had not grown weary as they endured many hardships, they possessed a trait that Christians should evade at all costs. They had forsaken the love they had at first. They were serving God, but not in the same manner as they once had done. They were sharing their faith, but not with the same intensity they had at the beginning. We can understand this completely, because we have all been in this position. We, for the most part, do not serve God with the same passion or intensity that we did when we first realized we needed Him, when we first realized that we were sinners. Oh, we serve, but not like God knows we can. This has to change, and it needs to change quickly. This world, more than ever before, needs us to powerfully present the message of Christ before time on this earth ceases to exist.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me serve You just as intensely as I did when You first forgave me.
