Thoughts on first love

Posted on Posted in Worship

First love is a person – Jesus. First love is delight in sitting under His shade, tasting of His sweetness; with His left arm under our head and His right arm embracing us.

First love is letting Him kiss us with the kisses of His love. It is whispering His name which is sweeter than honey from the honeycomb.

First love is pouring ourselves out extravagantly like a perfume before Him. It is taking a walk with Him in the secret garden in the cool of the day. It is sharing in the perfect union and communion of the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is enjoying Him for who He is and Him enjoying us for who we are.

It is looking into His eyes and seeing the world as He sees it. It is catching His breath and letting Him steal our heart away.
