There is a term widely used to define those people who have just started to walk their path in faith: “First Love”.
The use of this term is due to the fact that these people are extremely excited and euphoric about all this, in a gigantic level of passion for Jesus.
We talk so much about these people and say things like, “wow, it’s so beautiful when we’re in first love”. But we forget that our life with God shouldn’t change after a while.
It turns out that the more “time as Christians” we have, the more we limit our passion for Jesus. We have lost the enthusiasm of “wanting to preach even to a pole” and we are limiting ourselves to living only in that small space that we find to love Jesus, but not do absolutely everything for Him.
We have to return to our first love and cry out to the Father to help us to be extremely in love with Him again.
Remembering that you don’t need to repeat the prayer exactly as I’m going to leave it here, because each of us has a specific way of communicating with the Lord. But if you want to accompany me, it will be a pleasure. Feel free to speak your own way.
“Lord my God and Father, we thank You for the breath of life that you have given us.
Father, we miss the way we felt your sweet presence, the way our love for You was shown, the way we would just scream for the whole world to hear about how much we love You.
But Lord, time has passed and unfortunately we fell into the routine with You too. Forgive us for allowing this to happen and help us get back to living intensely with You every day.
Holy Spirit, we cry out to You to speak to us and manifest the will of the Father in our lives in the same way as before. Our cry is for us to return to the First Love, the first works and to love You intensely again.
This is what we pray to You, in Jesus’ name,
