Scripture:
“Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.” ~Revelation 2:5

Observation:
Jesus is speaking to the Ephesian church and is telling them that if they do not repent, He is going to take from them the light they have to draw others. In effect, they will lose the power of their witness.

Application:
What things are hindering my witness that I need to repent of?

Prayer:
Father, I turn away again from those things that are in my that are not of You. Brighten my light to the world so that others might see it and turn to You. Help me to avoid temptation and deliver me from evil.

Scripture:
“I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.” ~Revelation 2:19

Observation:
Jesus is commending the church in Thyatira for these things. He has some things against them, but these are the good things He chose to recognize them for.

Application:
This is a decent list of what the church and Christ-followers should be like: loving, faithful, serving, persevering.

Prayer:
Jesus, when You had a chance to send a message to this church, You made sure to commend them for these things. Give me these qualities also and opportunity to put them to work. Help me to avoid the problems that are so easy to fall into, so that I can serve You and others better.
