In the busyness and trials of life, it's easy to drift away from the Savior. We may continue to go to church and even read the Scriptures and pray, but we can still lose our first love. Christ commended the church in Ephesus for their works and for their intolerance of false doctrine yet admonished them to remember and return to their first love--him. In the same way, our outward religiosity can mask an inner lack of love for our Savior.
In this 31-day devotional, John MacArthur takes readers down a biblically prescribed path as they rediscover who Christ is, what he has done, and how they must respond. Each entry will move readers from understanding to application to reflection and prayer, with a goal of rekindling their first love for Christ. Makes a thoughtful gift for any believer.

I have really enjoyed this devotional. It is a great way to start your day and Get you into the right mindset before you head off to work or whatever you may have to do that day. I think this is a great devotional to start your new year. I can't wait to share this with all of my friends to get them started off right this new year. My favorite part of this devotional is how it takes you from remembering the your salvation to how you can return to a great relationship with Christ. I received this book form Baker Books for free.
