Day of Repentance

It happens so subtly. Passion and purpose are gradually replaced by patterns and preferences.

It happened to the church in Ephesus. They worked hard and endured hardships without growing weary. But they no longer loved God or others as they first had. So, Jesus told them through the vision He gave the Apostle John, “Repent. Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.” (Revelation 2:2-5, 7)

It happened to the church in Laodicea. They had become lukewarm in their passion, neither hot nor cold. Their tepid indifference was intolerable to Jesus. He told them through the vision He gave the Apostle John, “Repent. Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.” (Revelation 3:15-16, 22)

It has happened in FPC: Endicott. We also have lost our first love and have become lukewarm about fulfilling our primary purpose. God is using the voice of Paul Borden to help us recognize that, individually and as a congregation collectively, we have failed to make disciples for Jesus Christ on a regular and consistent basis.

Therefore, we were called to join together in a Day of Repentance. This is what it looked like.
