Love · Return

first love…

“But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first…”

Revelation 2:4-5 NASB

My heart’s first quest in relationship with God… was to know Him…

Simply know… the One who captured my heart… at a dark time in my life…

Know… Know… Know…

Next came my continual prayer… Grow me to love you with all my heart… mind… soul… strength…

Grow… Grow… Grow…

Then He found uses for me… ways to serve… my heart humbled… challenged… thankful…

Serve… Serve… Serve…

And in it all… I have come to know… grow… and serve…

But now I find myself returning… returning to the first love… the first desire… of being captured…

To know Him… the only One…

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

John 17:3 NIV

Where are you in your journey with Him…?

Newly captured…?

Desiring to grow…?

Hell-bent on serving…?

Is it time to simply return… to your first love…?

Finding love… in knowing… Him…?
