The letters Jesus wrote to the seven churches provide us some encouragement as well as warnings. Many of these apply to you and to me today. Whoever has ears, let them hear. (meaning – If this applies to us, we should listen and respond)
The Church at Ephesus – Great job in not tolerating the wicked! Great job at persevering! But you lost the passion you had for me at first. You need to fan that flame again. Whoever has ears, let them hear.
The Church at Smyrna – Your suffering and struggles now in myTthings. Our needs are met and we can become oh so focused on our wants.
And we want ‘more’.
Jesus is saying to us today that we are ‘wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked” when we are serving the ‘god of more’.
Our hearts need to burn hot for God so that we become rich in him, clothed by him and our eyes are opened by him.
God wants us to have victory in him.
Thank you, Abba Father!
