Food for Soul

“You have left your first love”

Jesus, through the Apostle John, wrote a letter to the angel of the church in Ephesus. He said to him:

“I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.” Revelation 2:2-4.

So, regardless of all of his good works, they weren’t enough, because he had left his first love – that love for Jesus that had been born in his heart when he first believed.

What is “first love?”

A first love means a love that comes before all others:
the greatest love.

Greater than our love for: Ourselves, Our family , Our friends, Our work. Even when we love and serve and give for others, our love for Jesus has to come before any of that, so that we can love them with a divine love.

To love Jesus is to keep His commandments. (John 14:15) That’s why if anything – our own desires, or our relationships with others – would tempt us to break any of His commandments, having a first love will cause us to put Him before all else and choose to do the good. That’s why Jesus uses such a strong word as hate. It’s a hatred for anything that would cause us to sin against Him.

When we have this first love, then we do everything for Jesus’ sake. We don’t do good and choose right out of a sense of duty, and neither do we do it to get honor ourselves. We do it for one reason alone, and that is for Jesus.

Is Jesus your first love?

It’s good for us to do a self-examination to see if Jesus is still #1 in our lives.

Jesus Love you!!
