How would you describe the vibrancy of your love for the Lord? Is it more vibrant now than when you first got saved, or has it grown cold? Join Nate and Gabe as they discuss how the goal of repentance is restoration of our relationship with the God of the Universe.
One way that we can lose our intimate relationship with God is by becoming too focused on our serving and losing focus on the God Whom we are serving. The Church of Ephesus in Revelation 2 had this exact problem. What was God’s message to them? Repent!
In this passage, God called the church to repent and return to doing the “first work” — making their relationship with Him preeminent over all other things in their lives. As we see in this passage, there are tragic consequences for missing this as a priority.
In relationships, we are either growing closer or we are drifting further away — there is no in-between. So where is your relationship with God—are you pursuing Him?
