Why some churches die

Church Family,

During my devotions today I read something very troubling.

Revelation 2:4-5 But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first5Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.

They abandoned evangelism. They knew how to do church and tell others how to live, but did not share the gospel. Their knowledge of God did not draw them to the lost who needed the gospel. They used their knowledge to falsely justify not going to the lost with the gospel.

Repent or I (Jesus) will remove your lampstand. 

Revelation 1:20 As for the mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lampstands, the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.

Without their repentance, Jesus is going to remove this church. Why? They will not evangelize. I pray that no church becomes like this, but sadly most would rather see souls go to Hell, their children included, rather than make evangelism a priority.
