The Prime Directive

9 Sep

The Prime Directive….

The Crusades began when the king of Byzantium appealed to the Pope for help after the Muslims took Jerusalem. As the Crusaders marched to Jerusalem, they destroyed villages and people; Muslim, Jewish, even Christian.

During the last crusade, they pillaged Byzantium in an orgy of destruction leaving the city open to the Muslim Turk invaders who sealed its doom. The Crusades, which began to save Byzantium ended up destroying it. Therein is a crucial lesson.

It’s easy to lose sight of our original purpose of serving the Lord and end up serving money or selfish ambition, forgetting the Lord of the House for the House of the Lord, forgetting your First Love, the joy of your salvation, or the love of your marriage.

Have you forgotten your first love, or the reason you’re in the Lord, or the love you once felt for your beloved, or the fire to serve God? Have you lost your crusade? Come back to your First Love… today…

Get alone with Jesus; let Him relight your fire and renew your love, your faith, your walk, and your mission. God has not revoked your calling. You just need to remember it.

And when you and your children return to the Lord your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today, Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. Deuteronomy 30:2,11

Today, refocus on Him who is your Focus, re-aim on Him who is your Aim, re-purpose on Him who is your Purpose, and re-center on Him who is your Center.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
