If you are too busy to be faithful
in God's Word, in fervent prayer, in church ministry, and in gospel witness,
then you are simply too busy in the affairs of this world.
Yea, then you are entagled in and are being choked out by the affairs and cares of this world;
and thereby you are bringing displeasure to the heart of the Lord your God and Savior.
Yea, then you have left your first love in and for the Lord;
and therefore you need to be zealous unto broken-hearted repentance.
2 Timothy 2:4
No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life;
that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,
and the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above,
where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.
Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works;
or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place,
except thou repent.
