Left Thy First Love

Leaving Love Behind

... and Returning

"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." -Revelation 2:5

There is but one remedy for those who have lost the zeal of their love relationship with God. It is found in the process of remembering, repenting, and resuming.

An entire body of believers had to be corrected by the Master – not for overt sin or immoral activity.

Their departure was far greater and more dramatic.

While going through the meticulous motions of religious living, they had forgotten why they were doing so.

They had left their first love behind.

Love was, is, and always will be, the standard, the goal, the aim, and the full meaning of our moments.
