PROTECT YOUR LOVE FOR HIM

PROTECT YOUR LOVE FOR HIM – Pastor Chris

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us (Romans 5:5).

In Revelation 2:25, the Lord tells us something quite thought-provoking. He says, “But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.” We just read in our opening scripture that His love has been shed abroad in our heart. That means you have to protect your love for Him, because you could lose it.

It helps to understand why He tells us to guard our hearts with all diligence, because His love is in your heart. The Lord won’t ask you to protect what you’ve received from Him if there isn’t the possibility of losing it. For example, people receive healing and after some time, maybe due to carelessness, sin or unbelief, they lose the healing.

As a Christian, it’s important you stay in the Word. Remember the words of the Master, “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). By keeping His Word, you demonstrate your love for the Lord. Every day presents opportunities for you to live out the Word, keep the faith, and maintain your confession of who Jesus is and all He means to you.

Nothing should ever make you take your gaze off the Master. He’s all that truly matters. Protect your love for Him and your passion for the Gospel. Keep preaching His love to those around you who haven’t yet known Him. Keep interceding for them until they receive salvation.

Let nothing stand in the way of your service in the house of God. Give no room for offence, malice or bitterness. Hebrews 12:15 says, “Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled.”

There have been some Christians who were doing so well, loving the Lord and leading others to Christ, but suddenly they became cold and even stopped going to church because someone offended them. No! Let nothing quench your fire. Colossians 3:23-24 says, “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

The end of all things is near. Maintain your passion for the Lord and keep producing fruits of righteousness; there’s a crown of glory waiting for you at the end.
