You’ve lost that loving feeling. It’s a song that when heard by many, the seen from the movie Top Gun flashes through our memory. A silly way for the guy to get the girls attention. He serenades her in front of an entire room full of people.

You’ve lost that loving feeling, now it’s gone, gone, gone…although funny in the movie, it’s something that we hope to never hear coming from the Lord.
God is serenading us all the time! Is He getting our Attention?

Revelation 2 talks about a message to a particular church, it recognizes that they have persevered through many toils and that they have been great at discerning good from evil. In fact, it noted that they hated evil and they would not tolerate it! They were commended for calling out anyone who was found to be a false Apostle.
But the thing that they had against them, was that they had lost their first love.
They lost that loving feeling.

There is a Call to Recall!
It’s a call that cries out, Come Alive! It’s not a call to to the oblivious, it’s a Call to those who claim to have been found. A Call to the Church, the “Brothers and Sisters.” A call to build with Love! To support and encourage, not tear down, criticize and condemn.
It’s a call to Rise to Life, Just as Christ did! A life driven by the same Spirit that freely Gave Grace, Compassion and Forgiveness! This is a call to peer through the Fathers eyes! Its a call not only to speak the word but to live it. This is a battle cry to the dry bones of the Church. Remember your first Love! Remember the day you got down on your knees and accepted His Name into your heart! JESUS!! Maybe you whispered it, with tears falling from you cheeks. Maybe it was a shout with your arms raised to Him! At some point in your life, there came a time to say Yes! Not to your parents, not your peers , but when You said Yes to Him!
Bring Back That Loving Feeling!
Recall and Rise up!

We Love Because He First Loved Us!

1 John 3:16
We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

Abide
In Love/In Him/ Him In You

1 John 4:16
We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

Romans 8:11
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

Reflect and Project The Love that was poured out for you on Calvary!
Bring Back That Loving Feeling!
