Strengthened Affection

Today’s devotional from the Love Expressed series is entitled Strengthened Affection.
Are you constantly growing deeper and reaching higher in your faith? Or have you become complacent-carelessly content and comfortably inactive-in your relationship with Christ? 

Sometimes Christians fall into a rut. They seem to be going through the motions of being a Christian without genuine feeling.  Gradually, their love for the truth diminishes and they grow content with the knowledge they’ve already obtained. The result is that they end up not having a hunger and thirst for the word of God.

What are you holding on to that is preventing you from drawing closer to God?   There are lots of reasons we become complacent in our walk with God. We get caught up in our own agendas, the daily routine of work, family, church, etc. GOD gets put on the back burner for a little bit, just until we get a handle on what we’ve got going on. Or maybe some sin gets in the way.  

The good news is that God loves you dearly and He wants to give you the absolute best.  Don’t settle for just getting by in your relationship with Christ. Rejoice in your relationship with Jesus as your Lord and Savior.  Make HIM a vibrant part of your life and make it a priority to soak in his word.
