A real treasure in the Lord's recovery today is that He is recovering our first love towards Him. Yes, we love Him, but our love for Him wanes, declines.... and we many times are just like the church in Ephesus - we lose our first / our best love for Him. But the Lord is recovering our first and best love towards Him as we contact Him every day, as we spend time with Him, as we read and pray-read His Word, and as we get into the ministry books - the proper openers of the Bible. Brother Howard Higashi was especially instrumental in bringing us back to our deep true real love for the Lord - especially through the songs he wrote. We are truly being betrothed to Christ as we are in the ministry of this age - we just love Him more and more, so that eventually we just say: "I repent and now return.... grant my heart for You to burn / flame in me this zeal / Lord, be in me so real!" Lord, do continue to recover our first and best love for You!

1. Just one touch of You, dear Lord,Just one look into Your eyes,Just one kiss from You,You're all I need, my Love.Let me hear again Your voice.You are now my final choice.Speak in love to me.I'll waste myself on Thee.Nothing and no one can satisfy mebut You anymore.Jesus, I love You, my only desire.Oh Lord, I just love You.2. Let me touch You as before,Craving for You more and more,You're the very best!I'll drop the rest for You.Oh, the kisses of Your mouthMake my lips to praise and shout.Lord, You're full of graceOh, what a taste my Love!Nothing and no one can satisfy mebut You anymore.Jesus, my first Love, oh set me on fireFor You, my only desire.3.

Amen, Lord, I just love You! - you know, we actually are not just believers into the Lord, or His seekers, His disciples, His witnesses, His expression, His testimony, His Body, His reproduction - we are also His Bride, His loving Bride, the ones that, just like the seeker in the Song of Songs, are in love with the Lord, captivated by Him, following Him.... we actually are in a romance with Our Dear Lord Jesus! Lord Jesus, we love You!
