“You have forsaken the love you had at first.” Rev. 2:4
Jesus tells the church in Ephesus that they have worked hard, served Him well, been patient and enduring. But He has this against them – they have fallen from their first love. Jesus doesn’t just want us to hang on and endure, He wants us to be madly in love with Him. Because He is in love with us.
What are some ways we can fall more deeply in love with Jesus?
- Read His love letter daily – God has left us a love letter in the Bible.
- Go to confession.
- Praise and worship.
- Appreciation and gratitude
- Tell Jesus you love Him — often
