Don’t Lose Your First Love!

Rev 2:2  I know thy works and thy labour, and thine endurance, and that thou canst not bear evil men ; and thou hast tried them who say that themselves are apostles and are not, and hast found them liars;
Rev 2:3  and endurest, and hast borne for my name’s sake, and hast not wearied:
Rev 2:4  but I have against thee, that thou hast left thy first love.

The church at Ephesus is shown in the verses above to have many admirable qualities. However, there was something missing.  They had works, endurance, purity, and good doctrine. Yet in all their striving to do the right things, they had left behind the passion of that first experience with Jesus.  They left their first love.  God shows here that He prefers devotion to duty.  He wants our actions to flow out of our love for Him!  Let’s pray together that we will find that first love again. Let our works flow out of our passion for God!

Keep Looking Up!
