The seven churches of Asia have modern significance beyond their representation as church ages. The church of Ephesus is the example of mechanical Christianity, where the love for Christ has been lost. The exhortation to the church is to remember from where you have fallen, change your mind (metanoia), and do your first works of faith again. We are warned by the example of Ephesus, which did not go back to its first works and thereby had its candlestick removed. Meditating on Psalm 51 provides a clear path to metanoia and regaining that love.
