Sundayvotion: An Unloving Heart

Image Source: struggletovictory.com
This is part of my post about our CLAG Women's Fellowship. I just think that I need to post a separate post for this one as I think that it's a really good reminder for us (specially for me), as we can get too busy with the things that we do sometimes. 

Praise God for the life of our speaker, Ma’am Vholet Nabus, for preparing a wonderful lecture that was perfectly fit for us. We talked about the different signs that we no longer love the Lord. You see, most sins don’t happen overnight, most of it’s gradual, it most often start with a “little compromise” that continues on and before we know it, we already fall into the enemy’s traps! So during this fellowship, we were reminded to be alert. We needed to be watchful to the signs that we no longer love the Lord. Our lecturer said that, we no longer love the Lord when we start to become:


-Unloving toward God. Our relationship with God should be filled with joy and should not feel like an obligation. We were asked simple but thought provoking questions like: “When was the last time you whispered to your God that you love Him?” It is when we loose of joy in serving that we start to become unloving toward God. 

-Unloving toward the gospel. Mrs. Nabus reminded us through the word of God that Our LOVE for the gospel should always be there. Our passion for the lost souls and desire to win them for the Lord should be there, always. 

-Unloving toward the unlovely. Sometimes we choose who we love. Jesus didn’t. He died for all, he loved everyone, even those who are unlovely. We were reminded that we should have a a deep compassion for others, just like the Lord Jesus Christ.  

SPIRITUAL PRESCRIPTIONS 

When we start to become unloving toward God, we need healing, and this was what’s advised to us: 

- Concentrate on other’s need instead of your own. This will keep your heart from growing cold. 
- Do something for other in a daily basis. This will be great exercise for your heart.
- Stay close to the Lord. This keeps our heart beating correctly. 

- Read God’s word daily – maintenance for the heart.

  1. I agree! Most of the time when we have everything we need, we tend to forget about God.

    1. That's true. Even I am guilty of that.

  2. This is so true especially when we feel so comfortable in our life. I always remind myself with this "There are situations in life that will stop us from pursuing God, but we need to keep pursuing intimacy with Him no matter what." We need Him more than He needs us.

  3. Stay close to God and read daily His word. One of my daily goal in life. After this fellowship i learned a lot from the speaker. Kahit active ka sa ministry but still may pagkukulang pa din tayo.

    1. Super true! Being active in the ministry doesn't mean being in tuned with God all the time.

  5. This post reminds me of the Bible verse about loving your enemies! If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. Indeed, loving people who love you back is no difficult feat at all. It's when we learn to love the unlovable that we truly become loving.

    1. That's a wonderful verse. ♥ Super hirap maglove sa mga di mo love, I'll be honest. :(

  6. "Sometimes we choose who we love" is true pero hindi natin alam na yung taong hindi natin pinapansin or masyadong vinavalue, eh ang mga taong mas higit pa palang nagpapahalaga sa tin. At ang love hindi talaga pinipili yan, kusa na lang yang dumadating.
