DAY 12 RETURN

Man In Prayer Christian Stock PhotoDAY 12 RETURN

“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.” (Revelation 2:4)

This exhortation is written to the Ephesian Church. He commends them for their perseverance in the cause of Christ, their untiring work of weeding out evil dressed as apostles. The Message says the following in the commendation of the Church at Ephesus;

“I see what you’ve done, your hard, hard work, your refusal to quit. I know you can’t stomach evil that you weed out apostolic pretenders. I know your persistence, your courage in my cause that you never wear out.”

Yet, in the very next verse, we are told that they have fallen from their first love. Then the question, do you know how far you have fallen? Wow! Is it possible to be doing the works of the Kingdom, being busy, doing commendable things and be so out of order? The answer is yes.

From the beginning, God wanted a bride; a deep relationship with us all. He walked with Adam in the cool of the evening. There is a big difference in doing and being. Good things out of order remove our attention from main thing: our beautiful and glorious Father. The mark of a man or woman lies not in what they do, but rather, who they are. The Scripture says the greatest commandment is to love the Lord your God with ALL of your heart, mind, soul and strength. After all, He gave His all to us in His only begotten Son.

PRAYER FOCUS

Can we allow the mirror of God’s word to change us, so we not be judged? As we seek Him, let us know that He is relentlessly pursuing us. His love is from everlasting. We are His children, the sheep of His pasture. It is His delight to receive us at the table!
