Have you ever seen a bonfire? How the start is always burning strongly while at the end, the fire dies off?
Thats the life of most believers in the kingdom of God. People started off loving God with all their hearts and yet, at the end of the day, that fire within them dies off.
This starting process is always like this:
1) You became a christian
Response : Hallelujah! I love God so much! Hes done so many great things in my life!
2) You starts to learn about God and His word
Response : WOW! God is so amazing! I'm going to do this and that and this for Him!
3) You start to evangelise
Response : I'm going to reach out to the lost!
4) You start to have revelations
Response : God told me this and that and this and that!
And then, most often than not, the fire inside you dies.
The next response : You figured you became spiritually dry.
Get a grip on yourself!
Before we get consumed by our personal problems.
Think for yourself.
Do you have the same passion Jesus have for you?
If Jesus was willing to come to the cross,
If Jesus was willing endure the stripes and beatings from the roman soldiers,
If Jesus was willing to be humiliated, stripped naked and donned a dirty garment,
If Jesus was willing to be mocked at when a crown of thorns was put on Him,
If Jesus was willing to do all these, and much more, doesnt it speaks enough of His passion, His love for us all?
He became the ultimate sacrifice, the Lamb of God, when He was willing to be crucified. The bondage of sin broken in our lives forever, if we believe in Him.
He broke the bondage of curses on that cross of calvary
He took all our sicknesses and infirmities for "by His stripes, we have been healed" so that the bondages of sickness can be broken forever in our lives.
He endured the shame, He empathized the brokeness that we have as we walk down this road of life, to give us a "future and a hope".
He did all these, so we can live in liberty and in freedom.
Did Jesus for once, treat all these casually?
Did Jesus ever, take His love for you lightly?
He could have called down legions of angels to save Him.
He could have called down fire of God to consume those people who humiliate Him.
God could have destroyed mankind, when Adam sinned against Him.
He could have simply wiped off the thought of you and I in His mind.
Yet, He didnt.
His love for us, never ever, died off.
His passion for us is always burning, be it yesterday, today or forevermore. Because He is a God who doesnt change.
If the fire inside you dies off,
add in fuel again,
more woods to the burning bonfire.
Build your foundation on the Word of God,
knowing, spending time, leaning on the Holy Spirit,
rebuild your altar before God again.
-Be passionate in your spiritual devotion.
Its not about me, myself and I.
Pro 3:5 -6, be dependent on God always. Its about knowing God, and knowing His thoughts.
Its not about dry religious prayers, its about communicating to God, Spirit to Spirit.
-Be passionate about serving one another.
We are all brothers and sisters in Christ.
Edification is God's command for us.
To serve is not a routine.
Its about the joy of meeting people's needs, like the joy of God meeting yours.
Its about helping others, and not seeking glory for yourself, but by our actions, God's love can be shown.
-Be passionate about living your life to God.
Its about fulfilling your Holy calling unto God.
Living life fully and with no regrets when you go up to heaven, because you can tell God "I've finished the purpose You've placed in my life"
How to find your first love again?
Come back to the altar of God.
Seek back God.
Its not about running away from God.
Its about running to God.
No one can help us, if we dont help ourselves.
Its our own walk with God, not others.
We have to learn. Now or never.
And to end off,
1 cor 13:3-7
Love comes at a price. If you want to love God wholeheartedly, pull yourself out of the throne of your heart, let Jesus sits on the throne of your heart once again.
Not seeking to glorify yourself in front of others. But to glorify Jesus in you.
Love is the greatest gift God gave us.
Thats the key to reconciliation.
Because 1 cor 13:8 "Love never fails."
