LOVE WAXING COLD

🔊Get Audio Version☞ http://bit.ly/audio1124

Rev 2:3-5[NET]
3 I am also aware that you have persisted steadfastly, endured much for the sake of my name, and have not grown weary. 4 But I have this against you: You have departed from your first love! 5 Therefore, remember from what high state you have fallen and repent! Do the deeds you did at the first; if not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place - that is, if you do not repent.

Because of the bad experiences Sandra had in her relationship with a Christian brother, her love started waxing cold because she no longer loved the people of God like she once did. She became closed hearted and skeptical about everyone. She didn’t know this was a weapon Satan was trying to use to weaken her faith.

Jesus tells us that because iniquity shall abound, the love of many will wax cold (see Matt 24:12). The measure of our love for God is revealed in our love for our Christian brethren (see 1 John 4:21), and this love is manifested through our deeds. If we start waning in our love for our brethren, it means our love for God too is waning. One thing that greatly hinders the flow of love is offenses. What fuels offenses is iniquity. God punished those through whom offenses come (see Luke 17:1). But let us not let their actions cause our love to wax cold.

If you have observed that there was a time in your Christian walk that you were more fervent in serving the Lord than now, it most likely an indication that your love is waxing cold.

We see in today’s Bible text that the solution to such backsliding is simply repentance.

Go into today remembering that God is Happy to restore His people when they repent in humility (see 2 Chron 7:14).
