Bait And Switch

Bait And Switch…

There’s a deceptive sales practice called Bait and Switch. It consists of this: the seller offers a great bargain or savings. Then, when the customers come in, they try to sell them something more expensive.

Satan uses the same tactics. He will always seek to have you switch your love of God for something else. Satan will try to draw you off track and will do it by attempting to shift your focus and your affections. It happens with many believers.

They start out with zeal and passion for the Lord, but then their heart becomes misdirected. They end up doing things out of other motives: for the love of status, the love of approval, the love of a person, the love of money or comfort, or even for the love of religion and ministry; for the house of the Lord instead of the Lord of the house.

Has that happened to you? Come back to your First Love. Guard your heart and your affections. Seek to grow even more in love with God than before. God is the real deal – don’t be fooled by imitations.
Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven. Matthew 6:1

Take inventory. Have you in any way been moved from your first love? Turn away. And come back to the joy of your first love.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love alway,
