The Emotional Connection

In 30 years of full-time ministry I have learned that meaningful relationships have an emotional connection.  This is true especially in marriages.  Troubled marriages are often missing a deep-seated emotional connection.  Spouses aren't "feeling" each other as before.  The hugs are simply a pressing of the flesh (no feelings involved), and kisses are routine meet and great gestures (no warm fizzies, no excitement, and no anticipation).
Christians, far too many of us have lost our emotional connection with God.  We are going through the motions in our worship experiences (private and public).

What can you do?  Meditate on Rev. 2:55: 'Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first..."

Christians, get back to your first love.
Recall what you had when you first came to Jesus. Go back and do the exciting things you did when you were on fire for Jesus. Repent (turn around and do things differently according to God's Word).

Be intentional and regain the emotional connection you are missing.  O taste and see that the Lord is good... (Psalm 34:7).

God Bless,

Pastor Brian E Kennedy, Sr.
