CT 99 - Metaphor "1st Love" (Guitar Chillout)

We love him, because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19 KJV

“Everyone is a fool for at least 5 minutes a day. Wisdom consists of not exceeding the limit.”–Elbert Hubbard

He doesn't fit second place!

Jesus comes first! The first commandment is to love God! "For I the Lord, thy God, am a jealous God, and I will have no other gods before Me." -- Anything you serve or work for more than God is putting other gods before Him, and He doesn't like it! -- If you put ... desires of the flesh first above God and others and the needs of your spirit, then you'll find that nothing ever satisfies, not even the most total indulgence in the flesh! -- If you love the material world more than the spiritual, then it becomes a form of worship of the creation more than the Creator, and God and His spiritual world refuse to take second place. -- God can't protect you, prosper or bless you when you are out of His Will and running around outside of the Secret Place and from under His Shadow -- His Wings -- and His fortress of perfect fellowship with Him.

There are no exceptions to His admonition: "Set your affection on things Above, not on things on the earth!" -- He still has the same old formula: "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, then all these things shall be added unto you."

Put business, God's business, before pleasure! -- You'll never lose by seeking first the Kingdom!

(Some excerpts from Nancy's "40 Evidences That You May Have Left YOUR FIRST LOVE!")

You can go hours or days without having more than a passing thought of Him.

You don’t have a strong desire to spend time with Him.

You don’t have a strong hunger for the Word; Bible reading is a “chore”—something to mark off your “to do” list.

Spending time in prayer is a burden/duty rather than a delight.

You are more concerned about physical health, well-being, and comfort than about the well-being and condition of your soul.

You spend more time and effort on your physical appearance than on cultivating inner spiritual beauty to please Christ.

You enjoy secular songs, movies, and books more than songs or reading material that point you to Christ.

You are more interested in recreation, entertainment, and having “fun” than in cultivating intimacy with Christ through worship, prayer, the Word, and Christian fellowship.

You display attitudes or are involved in activities that you know are contrary to Scripture, but you continue in them anyway.

You justify “small” areas of disobedience or compromise.

“Little” things that used to disturb your conscience, no longer do.

You are slow to respond to conviction over sin—or you ignore it altogether.

You are more concerned about having the right position than the right disposition.

You rarely give sacrificially to the Lord’s work.

Accumulating and maintaining material “things” consumes more time and effort on your part than seeking after and cultivating spiritual riches.

You have broken relationships with other believers that you are unwilling or have not attempted to reconcile.
