Rev 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Have I? Do I live my life without consciously thinking of Him and His plans for my life? Do I get up and get busy about MY day without considering what He might have for me to do?
Have I allowed sin to choke my love for the Lord Jesus Christ and what He did for me on Calvary? We live enveloped by sin, blasphemy, busyness, rushing here and there. Do we allow life to choke out HIS LIFE.
Do we rest on what we have done and the closeness that we have had in our relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ? There was a time that He moved in our hearts. We loved it and we have never forgotten it but we are living on past experiences not present realities.
Does our love for God and our walk with Him translate into something of real noticeable value in our every day lives? In other words is the love of God shed abroad in our hearts?
I know that after getting saved and having one of those most tender moments in life it isn’t hard for time to past and the experience to grow dim or even be magnified and glorified because there has been nothing else.
Today I want to think on Him, to love Him, to express it publicly. I want to hold on to and then grow in and from my first love!
