Lukewarmness—a Form of Blasphemy
“Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.” Revelation 2:4
In Revelation 2:1-7, we read about the Lord’s charge that the church at Ephesus had left their first love. It wasn’t that they didn’t love the Lord Jesus. It was that they didn’t love Him like they used to. If there ever was a time when you loved Jesus more than you do at this moment, you’re backslidden. G. Campbell Morgan said that lukewarmness is the worst form of blasphemy. I believe he’s right. Lukewarmness is a way of saying, “God, I believe in You, but You just don’t excite me.” Oh, how we ought to stay in love with the Lord Jesus Christ!
Have you left your first love? Has your love for Jesus became lukewarm? Pray Psalm 26:2 and seek His face.
