AwAreness: Baby can you light your fire

I reckon it is human nature to get really excited about something new.  The emotion of learning how to drive a car, shooting a gun for the first time, dating or anything that gives us that rush.  Becoming a
Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ, is like that as well.  When we first get saved we strive to live for God and His Son’s kingdom.
As time moves on in this life we all become less and less enthusiastic about the things we once loved.  Yeah I can drive a car, so what – it’s second nature; I shot a gun a hundred times – it’s loud and hurts my
wrist; I go  to church and tithe – I’m doing my part.
But in service to Christ we must never lose sight
of the most important thing.  It’s not what we do for the church or other people (although these are important in our service) it’s – do we love our Creator?  Do we put him first in our lives?
Jesus stated this very wisely in Matthew 22: 36 and 37: He was asked by a member of the Pharisees, a lawyer: “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law”?  Jesus said to him, “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind!  This is the first and great commandment.”
So there we have it – put the Creator Yahweh first in our life, pray for direction in all you do friends.  Seek divine counsel, I know it has kept my life in a magnificent place, navigating through these troubled times we live in.
