Within God's Word there are endless pieces of gold. And like gold, the further down we dig, the more we find.   


Our Mission

Our mission at First Love Blog is to help followers of Christ think deeply about God's Word as a part of their everyday devotional life. Oftentimes, reading our Bibles can become a swift horizontal track through the words on the page. However, opening up the Scriptures isn't merely a natural act; it is a time of vertical communion with God, through Jesus Christ, by the help of the Holy Spirit. Time in God's Word should be prayerful, Christ-centered, and applicable. Our hope is to teach followers of Jesus; husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, singles, pastors, and laypeople, how to carefully and enjoyably study God's Word. 

We also want to create a space, supplemental to your daily devotional time, where you can think deeply and share your thoughts on other excerpts, ranging from Puritans writings to modern day podcasters.  You can contribute your thoughts under the "Interact" tab of the webpage.


First I shake the whole apple tree, that the ripest might fall. Then I climb the tree and shake each limb, and then each branch and then each twig, and then I look under each leaf.”
— Martin Luther, on studying Scripture
