Is the spirit of God alive in your church?
Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. (Revelation 2:4 KJV)
Jesus was speaking in this scripture verse to the church at Ephesus saying: “thou hast left thy first love…” things that used to be important to these church members had begun to fade away from their day to day spiritual life. Perhaps they had stopped soul winning, reading His Word, fellowshipping with others, or attending church.
The Bible is not clear about what areas in particular this church had waned away or diminished in their love for the spiritual worship and work in things of God. It was clear many had chosen to turn towards idols, not keeping God first and foremost in their life, esteeming idols of this world of higher value than God. This misplaced worship affected their life, those around them, and the spiritual temperature of God’s church greatly.
