Devotionals

This short series of devotionals is more than a glimpse into who God is. It is also a window into how knowing certain aspects of His character can change the lives of people who love Him.

Returning to Your First Love

Many believers experience a sense of excitement when they first come to Christ. But like any romance, the joy can fade, and the relationship becomes stale. In this series, Dr. Bill Bright will show you how to renew your passion and enjoy an intimate relationship with God on a day-to-day basis.

 

From his book First Love: Renewing Your Passion for God

 

Episode 1: Wandering but not Lost

No matter what your circumstances are, what you may have done, or how long you've rebelled against God, His incredible unconditional love remains open to you. You can go home again, home to the arms of our loving Heavenly Father.

 


Episode 2: Transformed by love

God is love. The greatest devotion we could ever muster will never come close to the devotion Jesus has demonstrated for us. John declares in 1 John 4:19 that we love Him because Christ first loved us. God loved mankind from the very beginning, even before creation.

 


Episode 3: Remembrance - Reliving Your First Love

If you're experiencing a deep desire in your heart to turn from our spiritual failures and to experience God's wonderful love and forgiveness, be assured that He is waiting for you.

 


Episode 4: Repentance - Removing the Obstacles

Repentance is a lot more than simply feeling guilty; it means moving beyond guilt to transformation.

 


Episode 5: Resumption - Rejoining the Path of Obedience

The Christian life is not only what we do for Him; more importantly, what He does in and through us as we surrender ourselves to Him and respond to his love. 

 


Episode 6: Revival - Rejoicing in the Light

The moment you take one sorrowful, halting step of repentance in His direction, God's joy overflows. He bestows the deepest blessings and all the good things He has been storing away for you. His joy cannot be contained.

 


Episode 7: Reward - Resting in the Shade of Eternity

If the abundance of this life is only an appetizer, I long for the full meal. And if my comprehension of God now is just a glance through a hazy mirror, I long for a complete and unimpaired view. Praise God, what a wonderful day that will be!
