Falling in in love, with that “special someone,” we do all we possibly can to keep the relationship alive and beaming.
From the constant communication, to cherishing and caring for each other, the possibility of ending the new found love will seem like a nightmare.
But gradually, itches and challenges will come. You might experience distraction that will minimize the care and love to little. This mostly place a shaky ground for the relationship.
This is the same way our first love with Christ is.
So much passion, so much exhilaration, just so much that we give our all to be committed, but what happens when this love lingers on?
So many itches will come. Distraction will arise from all sides. Trials of faith and temptations. You will sometimes feel too tired or stressed out and the last thing on your mind will be communicating with the Father.
Gradually the love dies down. Unknown to you, the fire beaming passionately in you is dying down too.
The first love of many are fading away with the cares, fears and distractions of life.
The once passionate brother/sister now have a million and one excuse to their coldness in Christ.
Like the parable of the sower, we now have many that are like the seed that fell among the thorns. They are beginning to get choked up by cares and distraction.
This is an awakening for you that might be in this shoe.
As you grow in Christ, your first love must always be fresh and alive for Him. Distraction will come, but settling it in the place of prayer will go a long way.
A relationship with God without communication with Him, is in vain.
Guilt and fears will arise, but seeking for the love to grow into an everlasting relationship with God will ignite your relationship into a spur.
Make your first love with Christ a sparkling one. Crave for the fresh and true revival of the Spirit everyday.
