I'm an Ephesian
"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 have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent , and do the works you did at first."
~ Rev. 2: 1,4,5
How silently, gradually...almost imperceptibility my "first love" experience slips away from me. I do not realize it until I am jolted from my daze and find myself painfully far from the One whom I once loved with such passion.
How do you find your way back? He tells us to "remember"...remember the first time His sacrifice became real to you,... remember the time you cried because He gave all to buy back unworthy little you, ...remember the joy of total surrender...remember...remember from where you have fallen and repent.
Run back to the place you last saw the light. Cast off everything that might hold you back. The Ever Patient One is waiting for you...
