Have you left your first love?

In the Scriptures we can find a passage that tells us about a church that was in Ephesus and with which the Lord was not pleased, since this church had left its first love, that is, its relationship with God was no longer the same.

In the message to the church of Ephesus in Revelation, He begins by highlighting the work and patience of the church of Ephesus, what it has done to discover the false apostles, which has suffered and has never fainted. Then comes a “but”:

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

Revelations 2:4 (KJV)

Do you remember when you accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as your only and sufficient savior? Do you remember how in love you were with Jesus at that stage of your life? Do you remember that tireless search: reading the Word, praying, fasting? After spending time, although you work in the work of the Lord, do you feel in love with Jesus in the same way?

After these questions we can meditate on the other words that were given to the church of Ephesus:

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.

Revelations 2:5 (KJV)

Let us also remember where God took us from and where He put us that time we entered the ways of the Lord. Let’s go back to that first love, let’s go back to the first works. Let us remember how everything was at that time and let us fall more in love with Jesus. Let’s go back to first love.
