Have you ever stepped out to follow God, only to discover when you got to where you were going, that it didn’t look anything like you thought it would? Has your obedience ever been followed by trials and testing? This is exactly what happened to Abram after he obeyed God’s call. It all started out very different than he must have imagined, but at just the right time, God fulfilled every one of His promises. If you are faithfully following God, but your life isn’t what you hoped for, keep trusting Him. He will not steer you wrong.
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.
