Jacob had ruined his life. He had lied to and cheated his family, and now he was about to pay! When his brother threatened to kill him, Jacob fled for his life, and while running away from his sin, he ran straight into God! Surprisingly, God met Jacob in love, and it changed his life. Sometimes we also try to run from the consequences of our sin, but we must remember that God’s love is greater than our sin! He longs to restore us to Himself if we will just surrender.
Don’t Lose Your First Love
As Christians, it is possible for us to have solid doctrine, impeccable church attendance, generous giving and faithful service, but to be doing all those things out of routine rather than out of a heart of love for the Lord. The Bible strongly warns us against worshiping God in this way. Today’s message is a reminder of the danger of losing our first love.
