A Daily Devotion for Thursday, May 25

Revelation 2:4-5a


"Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first."


It is so easy to wander away from our relationship with God. I am speaking for myself, and no one else, but this happens all too frequently. Knowing my future, and having faith in Christ which will lead me ultimately to eternal life, is not a ticket to retreat into selfishness and indifference. I must renew and refresh my relationship with God each day, each moment, so as to live as God wishes me to live.


Holy One, help me today to be the person you meant for me to be. May I never grow complacent. Amen

Revelation 2:4-5a The church at Ephesus was doing good things, but had lost its way as to their motivation. The what had become more important than the why.

As CUMC/HUMC contemplate our roles in our respective communities let us not make the same error. Doing good is a plus, but should not lead to complacent self-satisfaction. We must never neglect the why behind our good deeds.


Prayer - Loving God, May all we do as church families and individuals be driven by and reflect our primary love and motivation - our relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.…
