Returning to Your First Love

MAY 28

Remember therefore from where you have fallen and repent. Revelation 2:5a

I got pulled over by the police on my honeymoon. My wife Joyce and I were driving south from Daytona Beach on our way back to West Palm Beach, and I was so in love with her, I had two eyes on her and no eyes on the road.

A policeman hailed me over and told me I had broken the 35 mph speed limit. I was surprised because I hadn’t seen a sign that changed the limit from 55 to 35. He said, “All right, young man, here’s what I want you to do. Turn around and drive back about three blocks. Look at the sign and go on.” That was my punishment.

The officer made me go back before I could go on. Did you know that the word “repent” literally means to turn around and go in the opposite direction?

That’s exactly what our Lord is saying to the church in Revelation 2: 4-5a. 

  Nevertheless, I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent

What’s he saying?

 “But I have this complaint against you. You don’t love me or each other as you did at first! Think about those times of your first love (how different now!) and turn back to me again …”

The Lord Jesus Christ is telling us to return to our first love, a passionate love for Him.
