The morning after pill

The morning after pillOne of the problems with the morning after is that there is a whiplash that comes with it.  Where the night before, the partner of our intimacy could do no wrong, the morning after, it feels like they can do no right.  At this point there is a temptation, a very strong temptation to abort the whole experience, and the person or persons with it.  “Throwing the baby out with the bath water.”  “The morning after pill,” this is a bitter pill to swallow.  Hebrews tells us, See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many,”  Hebrews 12:15 NIV.

This can be a very big problem in The Church, because for new believers the high of “new love” can be a set up for great disappointment.  The greater the high, the worse the crash.  A very big problem for the uninitiated is that our old man is not very discerning.  It can be very difficult to tell the difference between the high or chemistry of the flesh, and the high or chemistry of the Spirit.  The former is fleeting – the latter is ever lasting.  We are not talking about an earthly romance here, but a heavenly one.  The first love of the heavenly romance is meant to be everlasting,  Revelation  2:4, 5:

“Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love.
Remember the height from which you have fallen!
Repent and do the things you did at first.
If you do not repent,
I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.”

    Many new believers have a dramatic experience of coming out of darkness into Christ’s wonderful light and love , especially those who have been delivered and forgiven much ( myself included here) For many years I kept looking for that same new birth feeling that I once experienced until I finally came to understand that it is not by my emotional experiences that I can know that I’m loved …but by the work of the cross that He revealed to me for all eternity .
    So if I should never feel again… It will not change my love for Him because I know He loves me and will never leave me or forsake me and that He is worthy. Much like a strong committed marriage that may start out with a lot of emotion , through the years it can become much deeper then words or feelings and emotions … It becomes a *knowing*

    Oh that we may never forsake this great love for us because we don’t have the feelings that we think we want or deserve … His love is so much deeper and greater !!!
