EXPERIENCING THE FIRST LOVE

EXPERIENCING THE FIRST LOVE

By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

"Nevertheless, I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love."
Revelation 2:4
-------
Again and again we are called to return to the One who created us for Himself.
We are urged to explore the vastness of the Father's love,
the tenderness of His mercy,
and the goodness of His being.
We are encouraged to take hold of that which was taken hold of "for" us.
We are extended a personal invitation to eat, partake, and enjoy communion with the Father in order to grow, progress, and receive strength for the day.
Perhaps we have done poorly in our progress thus far;
 then let us now rejoice and enter into "this" moment,
clean as it were,
and grateful for the grace here provided us.
This is our moment of true beginning;
the Father's gracious love poured out and ...
wondrously filling.
Be cleansed and enter in.

"I counsel thee to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and annoint thy eyes with eye salve that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten; be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice and open the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him, and he with Me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me on my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father, in His throne."
Revelation 3:18-21
