Series: The Book of Revelation
We all know the kind of things that do NOT count (on their own) for how well life is going:
- How much money you have is not a good indication in itself for how well your life is going;
- How much sex you have is not a good indication in itself for how well your life is going;
- How fast you can run a mile is not a good indication in itself for how well you life is going;
- I know lots of people who have a lot of money who are miserable;
- I know lots of people who sleep with a lot of other people who are miserable;
- I know lots of people who are physically fit who are miserable.
There’s nothing wrong with money or fitness or even sex (if used within the covenant of marriage),
but the point is that those things in and of themselves are NOT good indicators of how well you life is going.
What if you had an accurate scoreboard for your life? What if you could actually know if your life is going well or not?
This week we continue our series on Revelation by looking at an important disclosure Jesus makes about how to know if your life is heading in the right direction or not.
Don’t you want to know?
The book of Revelation begins with a series of short messages from Jesus to seven churches in the Roman province of Asia. The first message is to the church in the great city of Ephesus.
Jesus tells the Ephesians that he appreciates their commitment to doctrine, but has one thing against them: they have forgotten the love they used to have.
Scripture: Ephesians 2:1-7
