We are Overcomers!

To live as overcomers we have to stay true to our identity in Christ. We have to remain in his love, believing
in him, loving him and loving one another as he has commanded – John 15v9-10, 1John 3v21-24. Revelation
2v1-7 is the message from the ascended and glorified Lord Jesus to the church in Ephesus. This church
actually had many strengths – the people worked hard, they endured hardship, they were spiritually vigilant,
they persevered. But the Lord had this against them: they had left their first love for him, and fallen from the
high standard of love they had at the start. His command to them, in 2v5, was: “Repent and do the things you
did at first.” He then goes on to give a promise: “To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the
tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.”
