TOPIC: RETURN TO THE FIRST LOVE (PART 1)

 

Memory Verse: Revelation 2:4 “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. “

Bible Text: Revelation 2:4-7

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

LESSON INTRODUCTION

To return to our first love means to return to JESUS. In I John 4:19, the Bible says that we love Him because He first loved us.

WHAT IS FIRST LOVE?

i. It is the purest kind of spiritual love humans can demonstrate

ii. It is the primary love for the Lord Jesus Christ that comes before or takes precedence over all other love in terms of value.

iii. It is the most important love anyone can experience.

iv. It comes with unwavering sacrifice – John 3:16, I John 3:16.

v. This love gives us unspeakable joy and peace – Phil. 4:7.

SOME COMPONENTS OF FIRST LOVE

1. Unconditional love – It does not expect anything in return.
2. Love is patient.
3. Love is kind – caring and compassionate.
4. Selfless and honest.
5. Righteous – does what is right.
6. Trusting and protects.
7. Hopeful – 1 Corinthians 13:7.
8. Love which eliminates fear and is ready to sacrifice – I John 3:16.

SUMMARY:

Losing your first love can lead to backsliding in the long-run.
