Topic:Letters to church in Ephesus and church in Smyrna
Emphasis:This book describes the churches’ situation through all different ages by using the letters to the “seven churches”. These seven letters reveal different aspect of Christ and talk about the churches’ condition and close with the calling of overcomers. The first letter is addressed to the church in Ephesus and points out that she “has left the first love”. This is the fundamental reason causing the churches’ decline—being busy in the ministry affairs but losing love for God.
Meditate:How are the “these things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, He who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands”(verse 1) and “these things says the First and the Last, who became dead and lived again”(verse 8) related to the situation of the church in Ephesus and the church in Smyrna.
Prayer:Please prevent me from these churches’ chaotic situation but let me retain my “first love” to you.
Hymn:894 Will you be an overcomer?
