Good morning brothers and sisters. Yesterday, I posed a question about the compromising church. Today I challenge you to look at your church and see if you are this one. Revelation 2:1-7. Before we go any further, we need to understand He is addressing the leaders of this church. He is telling what they are doing right and what they are doing wrong. 1- To the angle of the church of Ephesus write, "Theses things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: 2- I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; 3- and you have persevered and have patience and have labored for My name's sake and have not become weary. 4- Nevertheless I have this against you. that you have left your first love. They are working but they have forgotten the love of Jesus. They are trying to work their way to heaven. But Jesus gives the answer to this church. 5- Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place- unless your repent. 6- But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7- He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit, says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God." I want to eat from the tree of life and I know where to find it. I have to be in God to have it. So is this you or your church? Have you lost that feeling that you had when you first came to Christ? If you have, it says repent and remember. Go back there. You will find what is missing. Repent, refresh, revive. Rise up children of God, rise up!
