Good works are not enough!
This was Jesus’ message to the church at Ephesus (Revelation 2:1-7). They were hard workers, steadfast and careful with doctrine. But they had left their first love. What love? The two greatest commandments are to love God and love your neighbor. Their beliefs were orthodox, but their hearts had grown cold.
Has that happened to you? Jesus says (1) Remember back when you had that love; (2) repent of letting other things capture your affection and (3) return to loving God as your number one priority.
Let’s not let serving God get in the way of loving God!
