First Love

Matthew 22:37
37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.

Sadly many believers neglect their first love and are overcome by the world and the spirit of this age, they like the Prodigal Son are allowed into the permissive will of God in order to learn a big lesson. This is what God does with us in order to get from our head to our heart the desire to obey Him and overcome ……

Matthew 6:33

 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

John 14:15
“If you love Me, keep My commandments.

Psalm 113:3
From the rising of the sun to its going down
The Lord’s name is to be praised.

Song of Solomon 2:10
My beloved spoke, and said to me:
“Rise up, my love, my fair one,
And come away.

Matthew 6:10
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.

 

“I seek first the kingdom Father, it is the Kingdom I look to this day”

 

….. then you’ll see throughout the course of each day how God is working His will against your will. And even if you find your will starting to oppose God you can simply remind the enemy to take it up with God because you’ve already settled it in your heart, and you’ll be amazed how God works on your behalf …..

John 15:13-14
13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
I will ever love and trust Him
In His presence daily live

All to Jesus I surrender
Humbly at His feet I bow
Worldly pleasures all forsaken
Take me, Jesus, take me now,

All to Jesus I surrender
Make me Savior wholly thine
May Thy Holy Spirit fill me
May I know Thy power divine

Judson W. Van de Venter

“…… My love for my brother my sister my enemy is sacrificial in nature. It is giving, it is doing things that naturally I probably would not do …. that has to be the principle running in our christian life and walk…..Christ emulating His life through us …”

Psalm 40:8
I delight to do Your will, O my God,
And Your law is within my heart.

It’s not the song that I sing
The message it brings that gives it life
It’s not the words that I use
The phrases I choose to make it rhyme

No It’s You Lord
You’re the One who makes me
You’re the one who takes me just the way I am
And makes me a new man

It’s not the plans that I make
that show me where to go and what to say
It’s not a feeling inside
That tells me not to hide when I’m afraid

You give me all your love
And you lead me on each day
You fill my life now in so many ways
Well I know you are alive in me
And O Lord that’s why I’m free to believe

It’s not the guilt or the shame
That makes me remain a friend of yours
It’s not a rule nor a craze
That makes me always come back for more

No It’s You Lord
You’re the One who makes me
You’re the one who loves me just the way I am
And makes me a new man

Revelation 12:11
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
