Daily devotional: Asleep in the Light

Scripture
"Go back to what you heard and believed at first; hold to it firmly. Repent and turn to me again. If you don't wake up, I will come to you suddenly, as unexpected as a thief."
Revelation 3:3 NLTse

Observation
God wants devotion and passion from us, and relationship with us. He is pleading with us to not be indifferent or lose sight of our first love. He wants us to be all about Him, to hold firmly to our faith and conviction rather than let the fire die down to embers.

Application
Let us not be caught unexpectedly with our walk with Jesus having died down. Keep the fire blazing. Be intentional in walking with Jesus throughout each day. Make it a more real part of everyday life and in every circumstance rather than letting my faith just be something I hold to theoretically and pick up when it is convenient. Let Jesus and the Spirit envelop all that I am, and walk forward boldly and closely with Him.

Prayer
Lord, wake us up. Let us not fall asleep. Please show us your face. Make our walk vibrant as we give all to You, submitting our time, talents, and resources to be passionately devoted to You. Please work in us and through us, transforming us by Your power and bringing glory to Your precious name as a result.
