Summary: The first of seven letters to the Church's in Revelation is still very much relevant to today's Church! The bones of this message, with the same name, was adopted from D. Phillip Paschal

1 “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write,

‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands:

2 “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars;

3 and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary.

4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.

5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.

6 But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

7 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”’

To contextualize God’s message this morning...

I’d like for you to consider the title...

You Don’t Love Me Like You Used To...

Pray

Love...

Mankind has for eternity been perplex about this thing we call love...

Many songs...Poems...And muses...Have been written...

In a feeble...Unsuccessful attempt...

To explain...Or express...Love...

I understand...That’s it’s a thin line...

Between...Love...And hate...

It’s been said that love...Is a many...Splendored thing...

It causes the soul to rejoice...And the heart to sing...

Tina Turner said...What’s love...But a second hand emotion...

Al Green said...Love will make you come home early...

Love will make you...Stay out...All night long...

Otis Redding said...

If I was the sun...Way up there...

I’d go with love...Most everywhere...

I’ll be the moon...When the sun goes down...

Just to let you know that I’m still around...

That’s how strong my love is...

Yes...Love can make weak men strong...And sad hearts glad...

It can be the best experience...And the worst...

If we are not careful...Love can grow old...

When that occurs...It often grows cold...

Many relationships have ended...Because love has flown away...

It was not appreciated...Therefore...It could not stay...

Many have stated...“You say that you love me...

And that just might be true...

But tell me baby...Why you don’t love me...Like you use to.”...

I love the little things...That you use to do...

Something’s changed...

And you don’t love me like you use to...

Man’s feeble attempts at expressing love has failed miserably...

If you really want to know what love is...

Simply ask Jesus...Just ask the word of God...

For God so loved the world...

That He gave His only Begotten Son...

So that whosoever...Believes on Him...

Shall not perish...But have everlasting life...

That’s love...

This is My commandment...That you love one another...

As I have loved you...

Greater love has no one than this...

Than to lay down one’s life for his friends...

That’s love...

But God showed His love for us...

In that while we were still sinners...

Christ died for us...
