Bill Brinkworth When a couple falls in love, there is a lot of romance. They go out to dinner. He gives her flowers. She brags about him to her friends. He cannot wait to see her after work. The romance continues. They get married. Now the dates are even better. They go everywhere together, and then, a transformation slowly unfolds. He has stay at work a little longer, and misses the planned Friday night date. Money is spent before it is received, so the flowers are out of the question for one week, and then, the next week. Marriage can be difficult, and instead of bragging about her husband to her friends, she finds herself complaining about his faults to them. Slowly, over time, the relationship is no longer what it once was. Is the love still there? Many times, there still is love; it just got crowded out by things that have been given a higher priority than they should have. Often a relationship between a

PROVERBS 15:1-17 15:1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. 15:2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. 15:3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. 15:4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit. 15:5 A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent. 15:6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble. 15:7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so. 15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. 15:9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness. 15:10 Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die. 15:11 Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men? 15:12 A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise. 15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. 15:14 The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness. 15:15 All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. 15:16 Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith. 15:17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

GLAD TIDINGS • November 21, 2010 Worship Service Songs: *I Will Follow—Monthly Song **Rejoice in the Lord ***HOLY PLACE
By Mac Lynch I will follow Thee, my Savior, where-e’er the pathway may go: Through the storm or through the valley or through great trials so low. I rest in Thee, trust in Thee, I place my life in Thy hands. I will follow Thee, my Savior; Lead on, my Shepherd, lead on. I will live for Thee, my Savior, Tho’ war and strife mark the way. I’m so weak, but Thou art mighty, so live through me day by day. I rest in Thee, trust in Thee, I place my life in Thy hands. I will follow Thee, my Savior; Lead on, my Shepherd, lead on. I surrender all, my Savior, I hold no thing back from Thee; Every part is Thine to use, Lord, Thy living sacrifice be. I rest in Thee, trust in Thee, I place my life in Thy hands. I will follow Thee, my Savior; Lead on, my Shepherd, lead on.
God never moves without purpose or plan. When trying His servant and molding a man. Give thanks to the Lord though your testing seems long; In darkness He giveth a song.
There is a holy place far far from my rapid place where I seek face to face my God and King. I must go ev'ry day, and that without delay, to read His Word andpray and praises bring.
CHORUS: O rejoice in the Lord, He makes no mistake, He knoweth the end of each path that I take, For when I am tried and purified, I shall come forth as gold.
Refrain: The Word of God will light the darkest path, its treasures flow with strength anew Help me to hide its word within my heart; take this hour , make me more like You
I could not see through the shadows ahead; So I looked at the cross of my Savior instead, I bowed to the will of the Master that day; Then peace came and tears fled away.
So from my holy place back to my rapid place I bravely run the race He set for me He'll lead me all the way if I His Word obey and on the altar lay anxiety Wonderful Counselor, Comforter, Friend, Savior and source of our life without end.

person and the Lord deteriorates in a similar manner. At first, they are so excited about being saved and forgiven for all their sins. They attend church every time the doors are opened: Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night. Every day they start out with a prayer time with the Lord and read their Bibles faithfully. Every opportunity that arises, they try to tell others about the Lord and how they too can be saved from a burning hell. However, sometimes a transformation in their love life with the Lord slowly occurs. At the time, their reason for not having time in the morning for prayer time and Bible reading seemed legitimate. Perhaps, it was also a legitimate reason why they could not attend church on Sunday. Maybe even sickness caused them to stay home from church on Sunday. Perhaps the reason for stopping spiritual things was too much familiarity — when doing things repetitively, sometimes a person loses interest in doing them.
ask Him to forgive you. He knows where you went amiss. He just wants you to humble yourself and admit what you did wrong. A humbled heart often keeps one from returning to his old mistakes. The principle of II Chronicles 7:14 , although promised to Israel, can be applied to one’s own spiritual relationship with the Lord, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” · Go back to doing what God has already convicted you about. If He has tugged at your heartstrings to restart your daily prayer life, then that would be a good place to start. If you are convicted about not going to church, drop everything to be there the next time its doors are open. · Try to go back spiritually to the place you were when God was important to you. Do now what you did then. If you were closest to Him when you lived by faith, do the same now. “Well, it’s not that easy to do that now. I have responsibilities. I have bills,” some justify.
“Self-love seeks to use God. True love seeks to please God!”
Soon however, the reasons change to, “I have too many things to do today to go to church.” Sometimes, to cover up for their backsliding away from the Lord, other reasons surface, like, “I don’t get anything out of reading my Bible every time, so why do it?”, or “No one talks to me at church, so why go?” No matter how it happens, too many find themselves further away from God than they ever would have imagined they would be. They find themselves without the fervor, excitement, and love for the Lord and the things of God they once had. Are they out love with their Saviour? Many times they are not out of love with their Saviour; it is just because too many things got a higher priority than they deserved. They find themselves in the same position that the early church of Ephesus found itself when John had to write to them and tell them, “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.” (Revelation 2:4)
Their love for God had not moved at all; it was where they had left it. They just needed to go back where they had left it, and pick up where they left off. Here are some things that can be done to help one get back the love for Christ they once had: · Admit to God what you have done wrong and
“Are you happy with where you are spiritually now?” “Well, no”
“Well, maybe you need to pay the price to get back to the place you once were. God may never have wanted you to get in the place you are now, anyway. It was your decision, and look where it got you. It would be well worth it, to pay the price, whatever it is, to get back to where you need to be!” · Obey what He shows you to do now. If a message from the pulpit stirs you to do change something, change it! If a scripture convicts you of a sin, confess it and forsake it. If a heart tugging compels you to do something for the Lord, do it! Do all you did before, and more, when you had “your first love” with the Lord. He has not gone anywhere. He is still in the same place you left Him. Revitalize your relationship with the Lord. He certainly will forgive you, and you can start all over again — this time better! “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” Deuteronomy 6:5 Also: Mark 12:30, I John 4:19
