|In Revelations, John was commanded to write to the church at Ephesus of their good qualities, as recorded in Rev. 2:2-3. However, as recorded in the 4th verse, he was commanded to add, "Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love." Churches back then, as they are today, were made up of individuals. So, it was individuals of the church at Ephesus who had forsaken their first love. None who have experienced the saving grace of Christ should have reason to wonder to whom "first love" referred. Nor should there be any question of Christ having earned the right to be our first love, knowing the awesome price he paid for our salvation.|
