Rev. 2:5a “Repent and do the things you did at first.”
Perhaps lately, you have been feeling “The Lord doesn’t feel that close anymore”, “I don’t seem to have the same passion for the things of the Lord anymore”, “I just feel dry, a bit dead, I don’t seem to have that first love for the Lord as I did before”. If this is you, what do you think you should do? What do you think the Lord Jesus would tell you to do? The reason I ask this is that I was reading the messages to the churches in Revelation again, and the above thoughts and comments would have been heard in the Ephesus church. And we know what the Lord Jesus told them to do: “Repent and do the things you did at first.”
First and foremost, they had to repent. Repenting means stopping what you are doing and making a 180-degree turn from what you are doing right now. Have you thought about repenting if you find yourself in these situations? And also note the second thing… action! God expects a response. “Do the things you did at first.” Maybe you need to think about what these things were for you when you first became a Christian.
