A Word From The Pastor: Dr. Timothy Nelson

 

     
     

 


PASTORíS MESSAGE

Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. Revelation 2:5

Jesus tells the Ephesians that they had left their first love. Therefore, they must repent and do the deeds that they did at first. If they do not obey, Jesus said He would remove their lampstand out of its place. This will be an act of immediate judgment. Without love the congregation at Ephesus will cease to be a church.

When people come to Christ, they often are very excited and filled with enthusiasm for Him and His work. Then, over time, the excitement may wear off. Sometimes people get immersed in the routines of life and forget to keep alive their relationship with Christ. Those who have lost their first love must repent and enliven their experience with Christ. Do you love Christ NOW, as you have loved Him?
