Don’t Do The Good Thing

But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. ~ Revelation 2:4

Jesus prophesied that the days are coming when the love of many will grow cold. What love? The love God gave us. The love for Him. The love for people. The love for life. The love for good. Those days are drawing nearer and nearer every day. Why is this love growing cold? Because Christ is no longer our chosen Savior. He’s no longer our betrothed because another has caught our attention. The world has caught our eyes and all its shiny toys. We’ve become like the Church in Ephesus, we do much good, but while doing good, we lose our first love. I once heard a pastor say that the Devil gets us by doing a good thing instead of the right thing. Not every good thing is for us to do because not every good thing is for us to do.

For instance, King David could’ve gotten caught up in building God a temple for Him to dwell in, but when God told Him it wasn’t for him, David didn’t lose sight of his first love. He kept his eyes on God and all that God had in store for him. Jesus only had 3 ½ years to complete all He had to do, yet He always made time to pray and seek His Father in Heaven. Jesus didn’t get caught up in all that He had to do; He made sure His love never grew cold. He made sure He was on fire for God, regardless of the amount of work ahead of Him. As Christians, it’s easy to get caught up in doing good things, but we must never let that keep us from doing the right thing, which is seeking God first and His Kingdom.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Don’t Do The Good Thing.
