Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
She just needs some “me time!” He knows lots of Bible but is just tired of church! They used to be very faithful Christians and never missed church services. They used to be believers. They are not interested any more! This church isn’t their style. They want more music and less Bible preaching!
We have all heard it all! You know as well as I do that many people who say they are Christians have grown cold. They “used to” do lots of things.
They say that the church is old and that it is not meeting their needs. They say that the Bible doesnâ€™t apply to life in 2009.
Jesus said that their love had grown cold because iniquity or sin was on every side. Today, I think you need to analyze why you don’t love Jesus like you used to love Him. I ask you to consider why attending church, being involved serving Christ, reading your Bible every day etc. is not as important as it used to be.
Who changed? Was it God? Was it the church? Was it the Bible? Or can we be honest and just say that sin became more and more important to you? Would it be fair to say that other “loves” just become more important than your love for Jesus Christ?
By the way the principal sin that would cause us to grow cold in our love for God would be loving self! We look for what pleases us rather than what pleases God.
God just doesnâ€™t fit my schedule right now! I do love Him but just don’t have time. As soon as I finish these things I will have more time for God and the things that please Him!
Love is growing cold but can we be honest and quit blaming others and just realize that sin abounds in our lives?
So many distractions that we do not have time to love God. So many “me things” to do that we do not have time for “Him things!”
At least today ought to be a day that we consider what is happening in our lives. Has your love grown cold? Why?
