Remembering Your First Love

“Remember then how far you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. Otherwise, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent,” (Rev. 2:5 HCSB).

This Valentine’s Day, let’s remember our first love.

Remember

~don’t forget the desert times;

~remember what it was like the day you accepted Christ.

Remorse

~ remorse for back-turning;

~ sorrow for sin.

Repent

~confess your sins;

~realize He doesn’t exist for us, We exist for Him.

Renew

~ God uses the longings of our hearts to bring us into a deeper relationship with Him;

~ We begin doing things out of love for Him.

Return

~ return to your first love; the One who first loved you;

~ make sure our light (lampstand) still burns for the glory of God.

Retain

~the Bible is a book about God;

~get to know Him.

Your earthly Valentine may bring you candy, but your divine Valentine, the Lord Your God, provides you with something even sweeter, His Holy Word.

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103

Happy Valentines Day Sweet Sisters!
Love, Kelli

"Thy words were good and I did eat them and they were to me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart." Oh, how I love and treasure the Word of God. I like how you broke down the steps to renewal and your Scripture picture is beautiful.

Excellent word for this day. For some Valentine's Day can be hard but if we truly believe in our hearts that Jesus is our first love we can get through anything. God bless you Kelli and Happy Valentine's Day to you.
