Are we paying attention

Are we paying attention..

Most born-again believers aren’t fond of rituals. They look at the older, more traditional denominations and note the lifelessness in most of their traditions, rituals, and rites. Many rituals, though not all, are indeed without life. That’s because you can perform rituals without your heart. But there are many kinds of rituals, not just those of the traditional churches.

When you lose the fire, the zeal, and the first love of your faith, you’ll often find yourself living in the realm of rituals— doing the right things, praying, going to service, worshiping, saying the right words, even abstaining from sin. But doing it no longer from your heart, or passion and love for God. You’re doing it because that’s what you do on Sunday.

Then you’ve entered the realm of rituals. Is that you? If so, then get back to the heart of worship, the heart of praise, the heart of serving, the heart of ministering, the heart of obeying, the heart of repentance, and the heart of loving Him. For God doesn’t want you to waste your life in the realm of rituals, but to come back to the realm of Him.

Scripture: Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Revelation 2:4

Today, get together heart to heart with God. Seek to get to the heart of Him from the heart of you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
