Happy "Son"day everyone! And Happy July too!

From the Seven Days of Genesis to the Seven Seals of Revelation, Scripture is saturated with the Number Seven. It is mentioned more times than any other numbers; I hear...

7 Churches, 7 trumpets, 7 lampstands, marching 7 times around Jericho, for 7 days; 7 times on the 7th day bringing the walls tumbling down, are just a few examples...

July being the seventh month of the year I thought it would be fun to start a new series called... - Seven Series - what else?! The idea is to discuss Scriptures with a mention of "seven" in it. Let us pray the Holy Spirit to intervene in our midst to provide us the daily dose of His grace...

Today's portion is from Revelation chapter 2, verses 1-7 (no pun intended!)
To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:

These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands: I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.

Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.

Ouch! It hurts to hear such strong words... We have heard it straight from the Lord! The complain against us is that we have fallen from our first love. The solution that is offered to us is to repent and do the things we did at first. He concludes "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."

Do we have ears?! If so, let us hear!
