How is Love of Christ Demonstrated

The church in Ephesus is addressed in Revelation 2:1-7. The message to them from Christ is that their deeds, hard work, and perseverance are acknowledged and praised but they had abandoned their first love. They must correct this by asking for forgiveness and doing what they did when they first formed the church which is to have devotion and passion in their hearts.

Think back to when you first accepted Christ. Is there something you can remember that showed your devotion and passion toward Him? If there is, pray for ways to get that passion back, ask for forgiveness, and the desire to take the steps needed.

Have a desire to go in a positive way by sharing with others about Christ today. As you go down the path today, be faithful and look forward to the reward one day. Believe that this day with God will be wonderful because what He gives in a purpose is a treasure and the more we follow this purpose, the more passion we will have.
