The Bible is not written to us, it is written for us.
The city of Ephesus - This was a highly strategic place to start a church to have a gospel presence.
Jesus’ pattern in each of the letters to the seven churches
• Calls out the church by addressing the angel of that church
• Affirms their situation and their strengths
• Points out their weaknesses
• Gives a solution to their weaknesses
• Calls them to overcome
This church’s hardships, courage, and discernment resulted in Jesus’ grace, favor, and glory.
Jesus points out their weakness
Jesus is not just talking about a lack of love for God, but a lack of love for all, including God.
Jesus’ solution
• First, REMEMBER what you were like when you first started out
• Second, REPENT
• Now go back and DO the things you did at first.
• A WARNING that Jesus is serious about (v.5)
If you allow the Holy Spirit to convict you, and you humble yourself and you repent, and then you seek to live differently with God’s help and power... This is the lifestyle and life pattern of the person who will one day live in paradise with God in the new heavens and new earth.
Never stiff-arm the correction of God in your life.
