Forsaken Love

Christ is to be first in our heart’s affections, yet we are prone to become indifferent in our love for Him. Through repentance and prayer, we can remedy the forsaking of the love we once held for Jesus.

The Lamb’s Reward

Jesus, the Lamb of God, stands in heaven triumphant. What rewards has Jesus purchased for Himself by His sacrificial death? His reward is a holy people being sanctified more and more through the Word and the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 5:25-27). These people are also to be zealous for good works, not in order to achieve salvation, but as an outgrowth of salvation by grace. Finally, Jesus receives the glad, reverent adoration of eternal worshippers (Revelation 5:9-10). When the dust of history settles, the Lamb wins!

You’ve Abandoned Your First Love

In Revelation 2:4, Christ says to the church at Ephesus, “You have abandoned the love you had at first.” A supreme love for Christ should be the mark of a believer, but even energetic, orthodox Christians can still love Jesus less than He deserves. The solution to being zealous yet unloving: remember from where you have fallen and repent, asking Christ to change you into a person who loves the Lord with a humble, public, extravagant love.

Praise in Heaven

At the end of history there is a scene where Jesus, The Lamb of God, is standing triumphant and victorious. He was the Lamb that was slain, but now He is alive and He is receiving praise from angels and people from all languages and nations for His great suffering. The great question for today is, “has Jesus, our redeemer, received the reward of His suffering from our lives?”

Sharing the Gospel matters for the sake of God’s glory. 2 Corinthians 5:11 calls us to lovingly warn and persuade others because of the grim reality of hell, the glorious guarantee of heaven, and the call of our God who is infinitely worthy of praise.

Abandoned First Love

Revelation 2:1-7 “To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: ‘The words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks among the seven golden lampstands. “‘I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear with those who are evil, but have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and found them to be false. I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for my name’s…

A Vision of the Risen Christ

Revelation 1:9-20 I, John, your brother and partner in the tribulation and the kingdom and the patient endurance that are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos on account of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet saying, “Write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches, to Ephesus and to Smyrna…
