Our Lord stands among the churches and what He wants most is our love. Without that, all our orthodoxy and church work can never satisfy Him. He stands now as He stood in that great church at Ephesus and He tells us, as He told them, what to do. Remember, repent and repeat.
Let us remember how we loved Christ as young Christians.
Remember our sweetheart love for the Lord before it degenerated into cold orthodoxy and mechanical church work.
Let us repent.
Turn, confess, go back and ask God to fill our hearts with the love of God shed abroad by the Holy Spirit.
Let us repeat.
Do again the first works as we used to do when our orthodoxy was the hot faith of a loving heart and our church work was a labor of love and not just labor.
