    Default First Love's Joy.

    The same way our physical bodies grow and mature, we grow in our spiritual walk with the Lord. The Bible tells us we move from being immature Christians to those mature in the Lord. A new Christian is always such a delight to the Lord because the joy of His salvation is fresh and new, especially in light of all he has been saved from. Yet, he still lacks discernment and strength of character. Until the Word begins to renew his mind and does it's transforming work in him, his faith will remain weak, leaving him vulnerable to the enemy's deceit (Romans 12:1,2).

    The good news is, as the new believer spends time learning about who he is in Christ and surrounds himself with believers who are steadfast in the Lord and rooted in the Word, he will grow from strength to strength. A most valuable key, however, to remain powerful and effective in your walk with the Lord, is to never lose the joy you experienced when you first fell in love with Jesus. The journey of faith is exhilarating and character building; but without your heart being constantly touched by the love of personally knowing God, and yielding to His embrace, you can lose your joy. That first love's joy is what keeps your relationship with the Lord strong and true. It reinforces you with courage and keeps your hope alive. It's what makes you attractive to those who need Jesus in their lives. And it brings your Heavenly Father more delight than you can imagine. So draw close to His touch today, and let your first love's joy flow!
