Colossians 3:5, “…Put to death…covetousness, which is idolatry”
“You left your first Love”
Wow, the Bible’s really serious here about this, in a lot of other books, too, especially Hosea. We all fall short, but when You get to know God in a relationship, You begin to understand how much He loves us. So much stuff gets in the way, even works and we get distracted and competitive, when He wants to be Firstin our lives. Like setting aside special times in the day with Him, a friend does it at 3:16 in the afternoon, I love the mornings with Him.
“That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
“May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height – to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
