Genesis 13:3

Genesis 13:3

He (Abram) went on his journey from the south even to Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning.

Genesis 13:3

Here we see that Abram went back to his first love….to where it all began. Back to Bethel! There are times in the life of a Christian when we need to just “go back” to the place where it all began, to the feet of Jesus at the altar. Going back to our first love.

That is what Jesus is telling the church of Ephesus in Revelation 2:2-5 when He says, “Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen, repent and do the first works.”

Have you been doing that? What did you do at the beginning when you first met Jesus? Maybe you went to prayer meetings or had quiet time each morning.

If you miss that relationship you once had with the Lord, Jesus says to us, “Do those first works like when we first met.”

Keeping my eyes on Him.
