your first love

Revelation 2:5:

Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place — unless you repent.

The first works are those things done when we first committed ourselves to the Lord. We must return to those. Remember the words you spoke, the thoughts you had, the prayers you prayed when first you realized that you stood in the presence of the Lord? You remember. When you realized He is God and you are His creation. When you fell to your knees, perhaps on your face, and asked the Lord to forgive you and grant you eternal life. There you are. That is where He wants each of us to be. Every day should begin right there. That is the high point from which each of us has fallen. it is at that moment we arose and went from wherever we were into the arms of Jesus. There is no better place than in the arms of our first serious love.
