Many seem to forget that everything we do today should be for the honor and glory of our holy Father and his son Jesus Christ. Do you remember when you received Christ as your Lord and Savior? Do you remember the joy that you felt inside and the love you felt for him and for others. Well we need to get back to our first love, Jesus. Jesus should be our first love above all else. We should give him all our honor and praise, which he richly deserves.
With things going on around us we seem to lose focus on what really matters in life. What matter to you the most? Does Jesus matter to you more than family, friends, wealth or riches? Jesus said, “He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” (Matthew 10:37). What are you willing to do to prove your love for Christ? Are you willing to walk alone, suffer persecution or even accept death to prove your love for Christ? Jesus Christ should be the center of your world. You should love Jesus first above all else, including your spouse. Did I just say to love Christ above your husband or wife? Yes, yes, yes! Love Jesus Christ the most. If he isn’t the one you give the most attention to, then you have neglected your first love.
If you haven’t experience Jesus Christ as your first love, then you haven’t experience true love. I’m talking about a love that surpasses all understanding. A love that you are willing to die for. A love that brings you joy, peace, comfort and happiness. A love like no other because he is like no other. Jesus is the perfect son of God that was without sin! He is perfect in stature, perfect in appearance, perfect in spirit, perfect in nature, perfect in character and perfect in love. He had all the right qualities that we need to learn to possess. He cared about mankind enough to lose his life. He was humble and obedient to the Heavenly Father. He had compassion on others and healed many that were sick. He showed us what love truly means. It doesn’t mean to care for someone for a minute and then go on with our lives without thinking about them again. No Christ cares enough to continue caring, to continue loving us, despite our faults. Jesus sits in Heaven on the right side of the Heavenly Father making intercessions for us, which means he is interceding on our behalf. He knows what sins you have committed in the past and he forgives you when you ask him to. He died for the sins of the whole world, even for them that hates him. Now that is love; Loving someone that doesn’t love you back! He is willing to erase your sins because he paid the penalty for those sins, but you must accept him!
Now is the time to get back to your first love. If you haven’t accepted Jesus, now is the time to do so. Repent from your sins, then Pray and ask him into your heart. Jesus can be a friend to you like no other. He can comfort you, protect you, love you and mediate on your behalf. He can cast your sins away and you can become a new creature in him. Now is the time to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior; do not delay!
