Having trouble “feeling” the stirring love of our Savior?
Sometimes feelings evade us. A long-lived faith will undoubtedly experience dry times.
Of course, our journey with Jesus is so much bigger than a feeling.
But like any love relationship, we can do our part;
we can fan the flame.
So if you find yourself in the desert place today—
If you’re lacking desire—
If you’re living faith as a discipline—
1. Do your part by keeping His Word before you.
“How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
2. Do your part by chasing what lasts.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6:33.)
3. Do your part by talking to God throughout the day.
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.)
4. Do your part by seeing people as image bearers of our Lord.
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:27.)
5. Do your part by being Jesus to others.
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:35.)
The Lord has a gracious way of meeting us here and bringing us along.
