Do you remember that moment when Jesus got a hold of you and everything transformed, everything changed?

Do you remember the way you felt?  Do you remember the way you viewed your life, and you had one goal.  'I've gotta tell people about this.'  Then you blinked and it has been ten years...and the spark does not seem so big anymore.

What happened?

What changed?

Some say things like 'Well, life just happens...and I just don't have the time like I did when i was kid.'

This mentality is dangerous.  Because when  this mindset takes hold...we begin to believe the idea that church is just for kids, and not really applicable to adults. The Gospel applies to all ages.
You see the devil does not care how he gets you as long as he gets you.

This is not a new thought process...Jesus talked about this idea in the book of Revelations.

Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.  Rev. 2:4-5

People can lose site sometimes...and as a result of losing site abandon the goals they originally set in their life (to be Christ like). This is where and why Jesus tell us that we need to REPENT, and come back to where were when we first fell in love with HIM.

The answer is not another program...the answer to the crazy in our world is simply to FALL IN LOVE with Jesus.  Let him be the center of everything in your world.  Make HIM the TOP shelf of importance in your daily life. If you've lost site of Him...COME BACK.  Repent, and do the things you did at FIRST!  Fall in love all over again.
