Why does spiritual passion fade so easily? When we first experience God’s love, we spend hours thinking about Him, studying His word, and telling others how much He means to us. Then it happens our busy schedules slowly dampen our passion. Our longing for Jesus and our study of His character become an occasional glance. Surely the object of our affection hasn’t changed.

Have you allowed something to steal your passion? If so, it can be restored and maintained when you consistently remember. His amazing love demonstrated at Calvary. Repent of your sinful, unloving attitudes, and out of love for Jesus repeat your “first work”.

What once was filled with wonder

Lies cold within my heart;

Return, O Lord, that wonder,

And may it not depart

Devotion to Jesus is the key to spiritual passion.
