Revelation 2:4 (KJV); Nevertheless, I have somewhat against thee because thou hast left thy first love.
It is possible to get too involved in ministry and the service of the kingdom and become indifferent to the person of the Spirit. That is what Paul calls being a busy body (2 Thessalonians 3:11).
Some people are so busy ushering, handling machines, cleaning the church etc. but in their pre-occupation, they forget to give God their time.
How often do you simply spend time alone in a room, silent, asking for nothing else but only hungry to hear His voice and to feel His presence?
This ought not to be a one time thing but a present continuous experience of the believer. Never be too busy for God. Give God time.
He is more interested in time spent with you in true fellowship and communion than the time you spend in service to Him.
For some, when they got jobs, God lost His place in their hearts. When some got married, the wife or husband took the place of the Most High.
Let God be your priority. He did not give you a job so it replaces Him. He did not give you a spouse so he or she replaces Him. He is our first love. Hallelujah!

God is our first love.
PRAYER: Father, you are everything I ever needed; my priority, my only option. I live a life of constant communion and fellowship with you and out of that I serve. I can never be indifferent to the person of the Holy Spirit, I am alive to Him in all that I do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
