I Am A Church Member-My First Love-Part 6

May 20, 2015


1 Peter 3:15But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;”

When you and I love God supremely, when we refuse to let anything be our first love people are going to be drawn to Christ in us and we will become a contagious Christian. Let me ask you, “Can you measure God’s love for you?” There is no way to measure it, it is so deep and it is so full. God is Sovereign, and He is the creator of everything and you cannot measure that kind of love. When you and I choose not to make God our first

love supremely, the Bible teaches that it quenches and grieves the indwelling Holy Spirit. Let me ask you, “Can you measure the grieving of God when He is not your first love?” No! My friend, I believe that to the degree God loves it is to that same degree He can be grieved when we make someone or something else our first love. You and I need to keep our focus on God and maintain an unbroken fellowship with Him, allowing Him to have unhindered way in our lives. We need to always be ready to give testimony to others of all that God is to us and all that He has done in our lives.
