Recovering your first Love

Revelation 2:1-7

Introduction: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” (Matt. 22:37-38)

“He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.” (Matt. 10:37-38)

“He who has my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him… If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.” (John 14:21,23)

But their love was declining, into the situation Jesus speaks three exhortations for that church—and for all who have lost their first love.
