Task: Invite a guest who is struggling at the moment to join you this Friday at 7.30pm (also at 7am, 10am, midday* or 3pm) for The Day of the Desperate Soul.
SPIRIT – Task 4
Today, we will start meditating on the 7 letters of the book of Revelation. They will help you know your spiritual condition.
Meditate on Revelation 2:1-7 – The Loveless Church. (Only read the text below after reading the Bible passage).
Repent and do the first works. These words serve as a warning to those who started off well in their life with God but grew negligent over time. The church of Ephesus presented deeds that pleased the Lord. For example, it would not tolerate evil men, testing false apostles and finding them to be liars (v.2); it endured trials for the sake of the Name of the Lord Jesus; it persevered and did not allow itself to become weary (v.3); and it hated the works of the Nicolaitans (v.6).
Yet while doing all of this, it had fallen because it had abandoned its first love. There was only one way to leave that state: repent and return to the first works. Repentance is the only way that leads back to God again and the only way for the fallen to stand up and return to their first love.
Task: In your mind, go back to the time where you were giving the first steps in your faith. Begin to remember what brought you close to God and what made a difference in your relationship with Him.
Do something that you used to do when you first started in your faith.
As you seek God today, ask Him to renew your First Love.
Reminder: Continue asking God to help you overcome anxieties and to trust in Him.
