But I have this against you, that you have left your first love.
Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place—unless you repent. Revelation 2:4-5
I remember my first love. Do you? The church in Ephesus received commendation, but also a stern condemnation… they had left their first love, the love of God, Himself.
Any of us ever do the same? Get so caught up in life and ministry, we forget the very one who saved us and brought us into this love relationship with Him?
God, You are the object of my affection and the source of my purpose and life. Thank you for the kindness You continue to pour out upon my life. May I think of You often as I make my way through this day. Thanks again for every precious person You place in my life. Would you in some small way bless Maureen, Jeremy, Melly, Erin, Chuck, Galen, Dan, Peter, Jenn, Johnny, Kai, Keanu, Kaenan, Eden, Joni, Brad, Jimbo, Shaun, Dave, David, Dan… that’s enough for now.
