How Passionate Is Our Love for the Lord?

How Passionate Is Our Love for the Lord?
Dr. Adrian Rodgers

"Nevertheless I have this against you,
that you have left your first love." Revelation 2:4

In Revelation 2:1-7, we read about the Lord's charge that the church at Ephesus had left their first love. It wasn't that they didn't love the Lord Jesus. It was that they didn't love Him like they used to.

If there ever was a time when you loved Jesus more than you do at this moment, then you're backslidden.

G. Campbell Morgan said that lukewarmness is the worst form of blasphemy. I believe he's right. Lukewarmness is a way of saying, "God, I believe in You, but You just don't excite me." Oh, how we ought to stay in love with the Lord Jesus Christ!

Have you left your first love? Has your love for Jesus become lukewarm? If so, pray Psalm 51:10-12 and seek His face.

Psalm 51:10-12

"Create in me a pure heart,
O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me."

I am guilty of this from time to time, especially when things are going great! I need to remember to kindle those flames and make them burn bright again.
