Devotion for Sunday, February 12, 2023
“But I have this against you, that you have left your first love” (Revelation 2:4).
It is very human to just go with the flow and do what you do because that is what you do habitually. Who is to be our first love? “Love the Lord and your neighbor with all you have and are.” Is this not what Jesus told us? Is this not the greatest commandment and a summation of all the others? Yes, we are to love the Lord and be intentional in doing things for love of Him and others.
Lord, I do become spiritless at times and do not live as You would have me live. Guide me, Lord, so that I may walk humbly with You and live according to Your commands. Do not let me wander off the way, nor give in to the pressure to be conformed to any other way. Instead, build me up in faith so that I may humbly walk with You faithfully now and forever. Teach me again how to love.
Lord Jesus, You so loved us so much that You gave up Your life to purchase the grace we need to walk humbly with You all the days of our life. Lead me, Lord, so that I may humbly walk with You and learn how to obey all that You have commanded. Guide me in Your goodness and mercy to love others and to learn how to love You as You love me. Let love flow through all that I am. Amen.
