Good morning all. Today we are reminded of the faith entrusted to us from the beginning, and our responsibility to keep it. Have you been given any better gift than this?
Sadly, I have seen many receive this amazing gift, only after a few months turn their back on it and forget they ever received it. Jesus once spoke of those who received seed, but the desires of this world choked it out. I am reminded that those who received such seed did have growth. I can’t deny the joy I witnessed on their faces, their anxiety quelled I the grace they received. But after a few short months, that joy was replaced by the problems in their lives that’s still plagued them. They hadn’t been able to receive that grace in the rest of their lives.
I would ask you today to remember those whose fiery faith has been quenched. Pray for those who initially were filled with fervor, it now are as hopeless as ever because they forgot their first love. Pray that their faith would be reignited, joy would return, and a their love would grow warm.
God bless you today for the joy you have received. May you love grow warmer today as well.
