Remember your first love

"Nothing binds me to my Lord like a strong belief in His changeless love." 

- Charles Spurgeon


The foundation and the future of everything we build our lives upon has to always be the Agape love of God.

God is love, he's not trying to love, or choosing to love, He is Love, and he's totally eternally in love with you. John3:16, 1 John 3:16, Romans 8: 35-39


Love therefore is not an option, or a theory, but a living vibrant day by day experience that we have with the eternal God, whereby we love him with all our heart, all our soul and all our mind Matthew 22:37-38


I was recently at a conference where a prophetic ministry was giving the word he had for 2016. Many of us were wondering whether he would declare it was the year of breakthrough, or restoration, but what he said was completely different to that?


He said that he believed that 2016 would be a year when God would restore first love to the Body of Christ. A year where the fire of first love, would start to burn again within the hearts of Gods people. For this alone, would bring revival and an end time awakening to the nations of the earth.


Revelation 2:3-5 

and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the deeds that you did at first? 


Like the Ephesian church we can seem to have everything yet have nothing if we have lost our first love for Jesus?


First love is the key to everything for the church, for without it we have fallen from a great height.


Let me ask you a question, how is your walk with the Lord? Does your relationship with Christ feel close and

Intimate and growing daily, or dry spiritually and more like a chore? 


This is the year you and I can change that? A year where we must remember and return to a passionate love that saved us and set our hearts on fire for Jesus.


There is no other substitute for the love of God, nothing else will bring satisfaction to your life?

If we want our best year, we must give our best to God. That starts with love, let's make that choice today?
