Day 1 of Week Two
Scripture for today 2.1-7 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; 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: 3 And hast
borne, and hast patience, and for
my name's sake hast laboured,
and hast not fainted.
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat
against thee, because thou hast left
thy first love. 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. 6
But this thou hast, that thou hatest
the deeds of the Nicolaitanes,
which I also hate.
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.
