Pastor David sang a special then preached from Revelations 2:1-5. Our Christianswalk is the most serious thing in our life. Nothing or no one can come before God in our life. We must be the best Christian we can be. Jesus knows our heart. He knows where we are on Sunday and if we are in church whether or not we want to be there. He sees the good and the bad. If we are not careful we can get away from God. We need to remember daily what it was like before we were saved. Remember the excitement, the peace and joy and the urgency to see others saved. Who do we get away from that? We have to stay focused on Christ and not ourselves. If we fall short we are not worthy of Him. It was a very good message.
