Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first.
This verse breaks my heart in the best way. My priorities will never be straight enough to deserve Him. My life will never be good enough to deserve Him. My heart will never be pure enough to deserve Him. But there’s this grace that I’m caught up in, whereby everything I could ever want and everything I could never deserve was given to me.
I can’t forget this love. I can’t turn my back on it. I can’t leave it behind. It’s the only love I’ve felt in my entire life that has been perfect. Get caught up in the love of God today…and tomorrow…and the next day…
Never forget it. Never forsake it. Because Jesus could have forsaken you and I, and He didn’t. He took it all out of unimaginable love for us.
Oh man…the feels are for realz.
