Apply the Word – Pastor Mathews
Return to Your First Love
Read the Word: “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 . . . ” (Revelation 2:4-5).
Apply the Word: Warren Wiersbe asks and answers a very good question. He says, “What is “first love? It is the devotion to Christ that so often characterizes the new believer: fervent, personal, uninhibited, excited, and openly displayed. It is the “honeymoon love” of the husband and wife (Jer. 2:1–2). While it is true that mature married love deepens and grows richer, it is also true that it should never lose the excitement and wonder of those “honeymoon days.” When a husband and wife begin to take each other for granted, and life becomes routine, then the marriage is in danger.” Let’s do all we can do to ensure that we go back to our first love. His name is Jesus Christ. Let’s not take God for granted, but let us love Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Take steps today and do the first works you did when you gave your life to Christ.
