New International Version (NIV)
3 You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.
4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first.
1. Jesus sees all our efforts, they are not in vain.
2. Though we live for him continually, our zeal may have diminished over time.
How were you when you first came to know the Lord?
How about now?
