Thoughts of Devotion:
This devotional is a continuation of yesterday’s, we will be seeing the last five things (of ten) that we must do, and maintain if we want the fire and passion of our first love to persevere in our lives …
Six, we must make sure not to fall into habitual sin. It is one thing to be careless and fall into sin, it is another thing to let sin dominate us, and at the end of the day we end up backsliding in our walk with the Lord. Romans 6:14 (NKJV) – 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
Seven, We must keep the joy and zeal in our hearts to share the good news. Evangelizing and witnessing of our faith is a sign of our love and passion for Christ! Acts 4: 19-20 (NKJV) – 19 But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. 20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”
Eight, The secret place of prayer should never be abandoned. In 2019 we must have a place and time of daily prayer, this is a priority! Matthew 6: 6 (NKJV) – 6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
Nine, Feed ourselves with the Word, the eternal bread! The Bible is our spiritual food, without it we can not be strong and firm in the Lord! Matthew 4: 4 (NKJV) – 4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”
Ten, Above all love, love and love God. Mark 12:30 (NKJV) – 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.
I Pray that the Holy Spirit will light that fuse, the fire, the passion for God that burns like never before in our hearts!
Let’s enter this year 2019 wrapped in his glory, saturated with his presence, madly in love with God. Amen!
