When Paul planted the church in Ephesus, many came to Jesus with a "first love," abandoning their loyalties to the synagogue or the pagan temple of Artemis. Paul penned the Letter to the Ephesians to describe to them God's glorious plan for the church. Paul's wonder and awe saturate the book in praise, prayer, and worship to the glory of God. Later, the Ephesians lost their "first love" for God as Jesus called them to a decision to "repent" and love God first.

In this book, Brett explores how the Ephesians came to fall in love with God and what may have stolen their hearts. Brett explains how "First Love" compels us to choose to love God first - above any relationship, any commitment, any plans of our own, or any self-preserving instinct.
