Jesus warns His people in His letter to the church of Ephesus of the greatest spiritual danger and failure which may happen to them; loss of first love for Him. And seven signs of this love for Jesus being abandoned in the life of a Christian are no prayer life alone and with God’s people, no delight in His Word, low view and thus commitment to the church, rarely thinking about His Second Coming, lack of conscious obedience to His commands, no desire for spiritual fellowship with His people, and the placing of self-interests above His and the interest of others. The seriousness of this sin is found in its disobedience to the Greatest Command – to love God will all our hearts, minds, souls, and strength (Revelation 2:1-7).
“Hope Foretold” shows us the how Isaiah foretold the message of hope in Jesus Chirst. In a world of hopelessness and the season we are in, this is a timely message to encourage us in the gospel and motivate us to share the gospel.
We continue our series on the glory of God. It is the glory of God which is not only the end of all things and activities, but the very thing which satisfies the Christian in this life and the next. This Lord’s Day, we will seek to understand the Lord’s desire for us to see and be satisfied with His glory.
This Lord’s Day evening we continue our study in the wisdom book of Proverbs with the topic of laziness. Solomon writes a lot about this God-dishonoring characteristic and warns us of its consequences.
