“But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.”(Revelation 2:4-5 ESV)
“We love because he first loved us.”(1 John 4:19 ESV)
There’s a song called “First Love” by Kirk Franklin:
“I know they hurt you.“First Love” by Kirk Franklin
They saw you stumble but didn’t help you.
And now they left you.
They were quick to pray but slow to move.
And now you’re empty.
Too tired to run, you walk away.
In the night there’s a voice.
If you listen He sweetly says,
Come back to your first love.
Come back home, back where you belong.
Come back to your first love.”
Do you remember your first love? I do. But it wasn’t God. I had a crush on a guy I worked with but he didn’t return my affection.
God wants to be our first love. He wants us to turn to Him in time of need. I had a talk with God on my way to church yesterday morning. I told Him I needed money and told how much I wanted. He delivered and then some. He sent me almost double what I asked for. God is so good.
God loves us unconditionally and wants us to love Him the same way. He wants our love. Do you love God? Are you willing to do what He asks you to do? Are you willing to step out in faith for your first love?
It’s time we all came back to our first love, God. We need to get our act together and put God first in our lives. Are you ready? Are you ready for a lifetime commitment to God? It’s time.
Have a great day everyone.
