"Thou hast left thy first love."


"Thou hast left thy first love."
Revelation 2:4

Ever to be remembered is that best and brightest of hours, when first we saw the Lord, lost our burden, received the roll of promise, rejoiced in full salvation, and went on our way in peace. 

It was spring time in the soul; the winter was past; the mutterings of Sinai's thunders were hushed; the flashings of its lightnings were no more perceived; God was beheld as reconciled; the law threatened no vengeance, justice demanded no punishment. 

Then the flowers appeared in our heart; hope, love, peace, and patience sprung from the sod; the hyacinth of repentance, the snowdrop of pure holiness, the crocus of golden faith, the daffodil of early love, all decked the garden of the soul.

 The time of the singing of birds was come, and we rejoiced with thanksgiving; we magnified the holy name of our forgiving God, and our resolve was, "Lord, I am thine, wholly thine; all I am, and all I have, I would devote to thee. 

Thou hast bought me with thy blood--let me spend myself and be spent in thy service. 
In life and in death let me be consecrated to thee." 

How have we kept this resolve? Our espousal love burned with a holy flame of devoutedness to Jesus--is it the same now? Might not Jesus well say to us, "I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love"? Alas! it is but little we have done for our Master's glory. 

Our winter has lasted all too long. 
We are as cold as ice when we should feel a summer's glow and bloom with sacred flowers.

 We give to God pence when he deserveth pounds, nay, deserveth our heart's blood to be coined in the service of his church and of his truth. But shall we continue thus? O Lord, after thou hast so richly blessed us, shall we be ungrateful and become indifferent to thy good cause and work? O quicken us that we may return to our first love, and do our first works! Send us a genial spring, O Sun of Righteousness.

you can be accepted into his kingdom.
 I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted.

"PRAYER" 

 God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, 

who died for me to make me free of sin, 

I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free, 

I confess that He is the son of God. 

I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand 

your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live 

on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven. 

In the precious name of Jesus I ask.  

Amen..
