40 Evidences That You May Have Left Your First Love: day 2

11. Your heart toward Christ is cold and indifferent; not tender as it once was, not easily moved
by the Word, talk of spiritual things, etc.
12. Christianity is more of a checklist than a relationship with Christ.
13. You measure spirituality (yours/others’) by performance rather than the condition of the
heart.
14. Christianity is defined more what by what you “do” than who you “are” (“doing” vs.
“being”).
15. Your obedience and service are motivated and fueled by expectations of others or a desire to
impress others, more than by passion for Christ.
16. You are more concerned about what others think and pleasing them, than about what God
knows and pleasing Christ.
17. Your service for Christ and others is motivated by a sense of duty or obligation.
18. You find yourself becoming resentful over the hardships and demands of serving Christ and
others.
19. You can talk with others about kids, marriage, weather, and the news, but struggle to talk
about the Lord and spiritual matters.
20. You have a hard time coming up with something fresh to share in a testimony service at
church or when someone asks, “What’s God been doing in your life?”
