Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lamsptand from it's place.
There are many things to consider in this verse, but what caught my attention is the phrase, "remember the height from which you have fallen." When we commit our lives to the Lord and fall in love with Him, in His eyes we are in a high place. We do not have to strive to get there, we only have to love Him.
How do we love Him?
This verse indicates that we love Him less when He is less a part of our lives than He once was. Is the Lord more or less apart of your life today? When we fell in love with God He was included in everything in our lives. If you have fallen away, like many of us do, then make a decision today to put God first again. Ask for His forgiveness and He will meet with you in a special way.Try reading your Bible more, going for walks with just you and the Lord and spend time talking to Him. Let Jesus be a part of everything that you do, don't leave Him out of anything.
