Apostle Grace Lubega
Revelation 2:4 (KJV); Nevertheless, I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Jesus Christ is our first love.
The Amplified Version of our theme scripture says, “But I have this[charge] against you, that you have left your first love [you have lost the depth of love that you first had for Me].
Do you remember the time when you hungered for His presence like your life depended on it? Were there moments when you could not wait to be before Him because you knew what His presence could do? What happened to the days when you sang, ‘your presence is like heaven to me’ and truly meant it?
Some Christians have since disconnected from this level of fellowship.
They became too preoccupied with the demands of life on their time until God’s relevance to them dwindled to Him being a box to tick off on a to-do list.
How does He stop being the priority because you got busy–busy building your career, taking care of your family or growing your business?
Nothing, even what we do by way of service in the gospel, should substitute the necessity for personal fellowship with God. He is the priority, deserves our time and is the habitual center of our attention.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Nothing, even what we do by way of service in the gospel, should substitute the necessity for personal fellowship with God. He is the priority, deserves our time and is the habitual center of our attention.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for convicting my spirit to long for deeper communion. You have my attention and my heart. Nothing can stand in the way of our relationship and communion because You are the greatest desire of my heart, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
