SATURDAY OF SEVEN DAYS TO NEVER FORGET HOW FAR GOD WENT TO SAVE MY SOUL GIVING HIM FIRST LOVE, LOVE WORSHIP (Rev.2:4)! (if you don’t have time to read this go to the songs at the end of this presentation of first love, love!)
How can I not give You, my Bridegroom, first love, love when You suffered inexpressible torture in Your whole body, soul and spirit to save me from the eternal lake of fire?
Lord, I love this verse in Luke 24:32 and what the two walking to Emmaus felt, “And they said to one another, ‘Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?’
THAT IS PASSION! For they were hearing from the Savior’s lips quoting scriptures showing why the Messiah had to suffer so greatly.
Surely He quoted Psalm 22:1-31;Isaiah 50:6; 53:1-12 to name a few and then there is Numbers 21:9, I wonder if Jesus mentioned what would be later written in John 3:14.15?
NO WONDER THEIR HEARTS BURNED WITHIN THEM! HOLY SPIRIT KEEP THAT PASSIONATE FIRE IN MY HEART OF FIRST LOVE, LOVE!!!
May it NEVER be said of me that I have fallen because I left my first love!
I CHALLENGE YOU TO READ REV.2:1-5.
Dear, dear Abba Father You surrendered Your Son from the glories of Heaven for Me. John 3:16
Dear, dear Bridegroom of my heart You surrendered totally to Your Father and then to the cross! Luke 22:42
And You dear Holy Spirit You surrendered in John 16:13!
You each taught us that TOTAL SURRENDER IS THE KEY TO THE VICTORIOUS LIFE THAT PLEASES YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE.
IT IS THE FOUNDATION OF WHAT REAL FIRST LOVE, LOVE IS ALL ABOUT!! THANK YOU!
Dear Lord, the choice of my heart is to surrender all things each day to Your loving, caring, guiding and protecting heart.
My choice is to have You daily change my life.
I do not want to go back to the old life. I want more of Your life Lord seen in me.
I don’t want to lead my life. I no longer own my life! You have all the rights to it!
You died not to just save me, but that You would be Lord and Leader of it (Rom14:9).
I will present myself daily to You as a living sacrifice – that is the proof that I have first love, love for You. (Rom.12:1-2)! Lord, I love with a fire of first love, love!
That first love, love has even grown stronger this week in looking again at how far You would go to save me! Always, for Your Name’s sake alone Lord Jesus, AMEN!
Holy Spirit FILL MY HEART WITH THAT PASSIONATE FIRE.
BAPTIZE ME AGAIN WITH A GREATER PORTION OF THAT FIRE OF FIRST LOVE, LOVE!
May I continue to have a passion for seeking Your face; a greater passion for praise; a greater passion for prayer; a greater passion for Your holy Word; a greater passion for holiness; a greater passion pleasing You in keeping all Your commands given to live a truly Spirit filled life; a greater passion for grace and love; a greater passion for truth; and a greater passion to finish the race!
“…Let such as love your salvation say continually, ‘the Lord be magnified!” Psalm 40:16
“And He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. 2 Cor.5:15!
I NOW CHALLENGE YOU TO BE REMINDED OF HOW FAR GOD THE SON WENT TO SAVE YOU.
PRAY THAT IN EACH SONG FIRST LOVE, LOVE MORE AND MORE IN YOUR HEART AS YOU REVISIT THE GREATEST SUFFERING EVER KNOW IN THIS WORLD FOR YOU – HIS CRUCIFIXION.
