Come back to me

"Come back to me”
You left your first love
Time has come for the true believers to stand for God and for those who re lacking to return home. There are times when we loose our way because we have taken our eyes off of God and that causes us to drift away and forget our true love, our first love, but God is patient and will give us a chance to repent and come back before it is too late.
Re 2:1 - Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
Re 2:2 - I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
Re 2:3 - And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
Re 2:4 - Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Re 2:5 - Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Re 2:6 - But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
Re 2:7 - He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
