RETURN OF DRIFTING SAINTS: Why have we Neglected YOU?
Worldliness is an attitude of the heart that affects our response to God’s love and God’s will. I John 2:17 says “The world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” The two tests of worldliness: how we are responding to the Father’s love (our personal devotional life) and doing the Father’s will (our daily conduct). The bottom line for our drifting is not that Jesus has moved, but we have – we just don’t love Him like we used to. We have drifted because we have left our first love.
Rev. 1:5 says, “Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place – unless you repent”. Brothers and sisters, Jesus is soon to return, and we believers will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ and receive the things done in the body, according to what we have done, whether good or bad. It’s 11:59pm, the hour is later than when we first believed!!
Prayer: My Precious Lord and King, my Redeemer, my Everything forgive me for hurting Your heart through my sin and disobedience. Thank You for Your chastening hand of love and for Your continual forgiveness. Yes, Lord break my heart for what breaks Yours and lead me, Holy Spirit, to a heart of obedience. Amen.

Yes and yes! After reading this the Lord brought to mind tProverbs 6:9-11
9 How long will you [lslumber, O sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep? 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep—11 So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler, And your need like an armed man.
My goodness, thank you for this encouragement.
Amen, Sister Torain
Obedience is better that sacrifice..
