Confess the Sin of Acedia

That’s a great place to start in your relationship with Christ.  Confess the sin of acedia in your life and then start doing the things you did at first.  Get on your knees next to your bed and talk to God about your day.  Turn on some worship music in your car and sing along.  Grab a one-year Bible and start reading and meditating on God’s Word.  Even if you don’t initially feel like doing some of those things, it will begin to stir the fire that has grown dim.
