Verse of the Day - Day 187

First Love - Revelation 2:4


Bill Fairchild

Welcome to Verse of the Day!

Today's Bible Verse:

Revelation 2:4
But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: First Love

This was the charge against the church of Ephesus, but it's the same challenge today to every one of us who has walked for many years with the Lord. We can grow cold. We can take the Lord for granted and abandon our agape love for others.

Have you lost the undivided devotion you felt when you first came to Christ? The retired Christian rock group Petra wrote a song about this. Here's an excerpt of the lyrics:

Sometimes I feel I'm pulled in so many wrong directions
Sometimes I feel the world seducing my affections
It's not that I don't know the way
It's just a heart that's prone to stray
But with my weaknesses admitted
You will keep all that I've committed
So I commit my heart to You
My First Love

If I ever lack endurance
I remember Your assurance
That Your only banner over me is love
If my heart begins to waver
Woo me back, my loving Savior
Woo me back till I return to my First Love
