Pray that the saints’ love for the Lord would be rekindled, that they would have a fresh love for the Lord Jesus, and that they would have a fresh taste of His love (Rev. 2:4 and note 41; Jer. 2:2; S. S. 1:2; Gal. 2:20).
Rev. 2:4—But I have one thing against you, that you have left your first love.
Jer. 2:2—Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem, saying, Thus says Jehovah: / I remember concerning you the kindness of your youth, / The love of your bridal days, / When you followed after Me in the wilderness, / In a land that was not sown.
S. S. 1:2—Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! / For your love is better than wine.
Gal. 2:20—I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
