Thanks Dolly!

My Father-in-law Frank C. (age 87) was in the battle of the bulge, (artillery), under General Patton. He had the nickname, "Mister Clean", for he would frequently wash his laundry.

Thank You so much for this post.

My father fought in WWII. He was in Germany and France. His father served in Germany during WWI. I went to Germany during the Vietnam War and my son is now at Ramstein Germany.
My dad is now 83 and he really wants to see the memorial.

Your post just made me realize I'd better suck it up and foot the bill for him to get from the west coast to DC. Next year may be too late...

Spiritual Passion

READ: Revelation 2:1-7

I have this against you, that you have left your first love. —Revelation 2:4

Why does spiritual passion fade so easily? When we first experience God’s love, we spend hours thinking about Him, studying His Word, and telling others how much He means to us. Then it happens. Our busy schedules slowly dampen our passion. Our longing for Jesus and our study of His character become an occasional glance. Surely the object of our affection hasn’t changed!

The church at Ephesus wrestled with maintaining its spiritual passion. Jesus, through John, wanted to help them restore and maintain their love and zeal for Him. Although He commended this church for their work, Jesus saw that they had abandoned their first love—Him (Rev. 2:4).

The Ephesians had lost their spiritual passion for Jesus. It had become a cold and mechanical orthodoxy. I wonder if they had allowed the stealthy culprit of religion and busyness to enter their hearts. Whatever it was, something had stolen the affection they had once reserved for the Lord.

Have you allowed something to steal your passion? If so, it can be restored and maintained when you consistently remember His amazing love demonstrated at Calvary. Repent of your sinful, unloving attitudes, and out of love for Jesus repeat your "first works" (v.5).

What once was filled with wonder
Lies cold within my heart;
Return, O Lord, that wonder,
And may it not depart. —Sper

Devotion to Jesus is the key to spiritual passion.
